My Bio
I'm a sculptor and doll-maker living and working in Ohio. I primarily work in needle felting and mixed-media, occasionally venturing into painting, making pottery, sewing, knitting, weaving, and writing (because life would get boring if I focus on just one media.)

I work at Decoy Art Studio as the Master Sidekick, and I sometimes help our Kiln Master in the clay lab. I absolutely love my job, and if you're ever in the area you should come visit us!

Sometimes I model and act, mostly as a hobby.

I have a bunch of crazy pets; a cat, a leopard gecko, two rats (that I hand-raised from one week old), and two ferrets. We all make one crazy little family.

I hope you enjoy my art, and feel free to drop me a note if you have any questions!

Added a few new works

In my patented fashion I've been keeping myself insanely busy, but that doesn't mean I haven't been able to make time for art! I've been painting, sculpting, needle felting, and even 3D printing my little heart out - so I've uploaded a couple new submissions for you guys to see. I recently got a second job at Proto BuildBar - which is the first of its kind in the world: basically picture one part coffee shop, one part bar, and one part fab-lab and you've got the general idea behind Proto. What's really nice is that it's given me access to a slew of 3D printers to play with, so obviously I've been taking advantage of that opportunity every ti
Hi there, friends! I have a few new little dolls for you to enjoy - and I certainly hope you like them! They were a ton of fun for me to make, and I hope they're as much fun for you to enjoy. I'll be updating my gallery over the next few weeks with s...

2016 was busy

2016 was busy

So, if you've followed me for a while you may have noticed that I've been less active than is usual for even myself. I just got back from John C Campbell Folk School a little over 48 hours ago, marking a long end do the busiest summer of my life... Since the beginning of 2016 I've: been assistant-coordinator of one of my city's biggest art and music festivals; switched from being assistant-manager of a pet store to assistant-manager of an art studio; participated in said art and music festival; hand-raised a litter of rats; travelled to Chicago IL, Louisville KY, and Brasstown NC; helped work on a cool indie movie; taken a week-long course o

Your needle felting = perfection. Teach me your ways, wise one! 

Also pay no mind to that asshole you posted about on tumblr. Theyre obvobviously ignorant and arrogant. 
Thank you so much dear! I would love to teach anyone and everyone about my craft and art - if you have any questions about a particular medium, process, or piece please let me know and I'll explain it to the best of my abilities!

I would eventually like to make tutorials, but first I have to figure out what my watchers want to learn ;)

As for the commenter: I'm mostly just flattered! I like living the "genderfuck" life, and if somebody mislabels me it honestly just makes me proud that I'm pulling it off! I feel sorry for them, that they have so much time to waste and so few friends that they feel it appropriate to attempt to insult random people on DA. If I had that much free time, I'd be spending it all with my friends!
:cake: Happy Birthday! :) :cake: 
Thank you!
