“Drawing and painting have always been a constant in my life. Making pictures has been as vital to me as breathing as far back as I can remember. Sculpting was something that I did a great deal of as a child, but it didn’t enter my life with any frequency again until a couple of years ago, when I made my first successful art doll – a chihuahua named Taquito for my sister. I have always been very introverted – I didn’t connect easily, and from a young age, I turned inward, and dreamed up fantastic creatures and adventures to live out within myself. I never stopped. My truest art has always been about connecting these things inside me with the outside world – whether it be illustrating to create a window in, or using dolls, sculpture, and puppets to bring creatures and characters out.”
