Here you will find whimsical, dark, quirky, humorous art work created by me.
Each item is a tangible piece of art constructed solely from my imagination
and formed by my hands.
I express myself primarily in sculpture.
🐸 Welcome to My Store 🐸
This is my latest interpretation of that old silly song about the infamous One Eyed One Horned Flying Purple People Eater.
A one of a kind, hand sculpted, multi medium art piece.
Very large. Approximately 15 inches tall, 16 inches long, and 9 inches wide. The wings and feet are created in flexible cosclay polymer for durability. The entire piece is sculpted over a sturdy wire frame armature. After sculpt and paint are completed, the piece is then sealed with satin acrylic clear coat.$2,500.00
Not sure what the heck this is other than a monster. Someone said it looks like SpongeBob may have had a baby. I don’t know about that, but it will take a special mom to want to nurture this guy. This is a totally original one of a kind wall sculpture. He can hang out and spy on you from any room in your house. Maybe not the bathroom, that would be too creepy and it doesn’t look like those teeth have seen dental care in years, so why even go there?
Bill needs love, see how he has his pitiful little give me a hug look? Don’t run, he doesn’t bite….well, not hard anyway.$90.00
Meet Icky the Bat, the bad cousin to Vlad.
His favorite pass time is munching mosquitoes and crashing Halloween parties. He is a former member of a psycho bat band, and has been seen during performances biting the heads off of the lead singers.
His measurements are 5“ x 4“ x 3“.
He is a one-of-a-kind original sculpture.
Fully formed of epoxy clay and thermal plastic over an armature.
Meet Gill-the lobstrocity. Slithering around the beach in search of sand fleas and left over picnic lunches. Just when you thought it was safe to go to the beach……Gill arrives right in the middle of a sunny day. Might make you think twice about about that beach vacation.
Gill is hand built epoxy clay over a wire frame armature, painstakingly detailed and painted with acrylic paint, sealed with flat crystal clear.
This is a one of a kind accent lamp with handmade sculptural elements. Base is a hand cut slab from a white oak tree, cloth lampshade, sculpted flying insect and handmade original trinket box toad attached to base.
Thanks for visiting my shop. 🐸

Grizelda is not your run of the mill spider. She is the Mother of All Spiders. She is constructed of epoxy clay, thermo plastic over a foil core and wire armature. Guaranteed to scare you and then make you laugh when your realize, “Spiders don’t get that big!”, or Do they?
She is a one of a kind. Meticulously sculpted and detailed surface design.
Thanks for Looking!!
This is an original sculpt. Dredged from the depths of my imagination. I like frogs, tadpoles and dragons, so why not create a water dragon tadpole? They have to come from somewhere. This guy is created with epoxy clay over an armature. He was spray sealed with several coats of colored paint primer to start the paint process. Each detail has been carefully thought out and applied by hand painted surface design. Including the eyes. After all the decorative steps are accomplished he was sealed with two coats of indoor/outdoor quality clear satin sealer for durability.
Meet Too Tan Tina. She is a leathery little minx that has overexposed herself in pursuit of the perfect tan.
This is a fully sculpted, one of a kind art doll. She is wearing an iconic yellow bikini with pink polka dots, her nails are manicured bright pink to compliment her suit, she has wool roving hair and eyelashes. She is approximately 6”tall.
Meet Boris the pumpkin and Bella the bat. Both little guys are out for some Halloween fun.
Boris is from the “when vegetables go bad psycho pumpkin group”. He lives up to that reputation when he catches the scent of candy corn and goes into a sugar frenzy. He shakes down his batty buddy until the poor little guy spills his candy corn.
This is a one of a kind, fully sculpted piece. It stands 11 1/2” tall. Fully painted and sealed with acrylic clear coat.$250.00$250.00
Go into the light! is a combination bas relief three dimensional painting on a 3 x 3 canvas mounted on a 4 x 4 wood plaque.
