my living in the art field. I began at the age of 17, working my way through college at Hanna Barbera. Then came Disney, Warner Brothers, Universal Pictures, Turner Films... I spent many years as a color stylist, animation checker, final checker, digital compositor, etc. in Feature Animation. I've also worked a makeup artist for feature films and print. In television I work in the sound department as an Audio A2.
Lots of modeling jobs, co-host on a travel sports show, voice over work, design model for animated characters, crafting a functional mermaid tail for an ocean shoot and other fun projects have been sprinkled in just to shake things up and make life most interesting.
My mixed media paintings toured the Art Expo Circuit. I also created many custom wire work jewelry pieces for stuido clients, as well as amulets, spider and insect sculptures and other assorted creations over the years.
Several of my steampunk meets the Borg Queen pendants were chosen by the Costume Designer for the new Total Recall film to be worn by Kate Beckinsale - very exciting!
I founded two corporations o- Animalstars, Inc. and Femlogic, Inc.
At Animalstars, we hand craft high end pet id tags and collars. I created Swarovski Crystal inlaid pet ID tags you now see knocked off by many companies - my originals were seen on Bruiser in Legally Blonde.
On the subject of animals, we rescue dogs, cats, horses and whatever birds get into trouble and need rehab before going back to their lives if at all possible. Most of our animals were found feral, untamed or unsocialized when we took them in. Turning a feral frightened animal into a happy, healthy, trusting and loving human companion makes all the effort and expense worthwhile.
At Femlogic, I formulated a line of healthy natural skin care products and created the Essential Breathing Pipes. I love the idea of a product that's healthy and can help just about every adult - helps people quit smoking, stress relief, run faster, relieve headaches or stomach aches, improve concentration and brain function, in a nutshell - a pleasurable way to enjoy every day that much more!
I love to create out of repurposed or disposed of, neglected items, from vintage watch parts to tree branches. Thank you for visiting my store!
