I did not start out as a professional artist although I always knew I was meant to be one. I loved figurative sculpture and decided to create sculptures in my free time. After creating a portrait sculpture of my husband and myself for our wedding I realized I had a marketable talent. I received my first commission for a portrait cake topper the day I was laid off of my dot-com programming job. I took that as a sign I was meant to sculpt!
I soon received international acclaim for my polymer clay portrait sculptures and wedding cake toppers including the five-foot life-size “bride’s cake” (where the polymer-clay-sculpted head and shoulders emerged from a six tiered cake). My work has appeared on CNN, Inside Edition, countless news stories and Inside Weekly Magazine. I have appeared on HGTV’s That’s Clever!, and my art dolls have been published in several national magazines.
