Unfortunately, this is sort of a farewell. With the rise in AI design and 3D printers taking over, as well as social media dimming a lot of artists, I cannot continue to make this a thing for me anymore. It has become far too stressful trying to keep up with bills, while competing with 3D printing prices, when I am spending countless manual hours creating something by hand, with a skill that I have spent 9 years on developing, and it's not fair to myself to cut myself short for that reason. I even tried cutting labor by sculpting and casting, and it still comes down to my posts not getting out there, not being seen, social media has banned me from advertising due to "tobacco products" on my site (not from trying to advertise them). I have been fighting against the grain for 9 years to become noticed for my art enough to not have to worry about this, but it has become far too depressing to keep fighting, and it has done a real number on my mental health, and impacted my life more negatively than positively. I just don't have it in me anymore, I used to be filled with the feeling of accomplishment and success and a feeling of confidence when I finished a piece. Now, I don't feel any of that, because I'm so tired of being cooped up inside to make enough to pay bills and the insane cost of groceries, and it really sucks. I haven't had a life in about 7 or 8 years, and life is passing me by. I will continue to create, but on my own terms, and at my own pace, and will no longer be taking custom orders once I have finished the pieces I already have booked. But I will just be creating when i have the inspiration and urge to sculpt something awesome. I will be moving on to try my hand at tattooing, and if that doesn't work out, I am going back to being a hidden gem in West Springfield, MA, working a 9-5 in some pet shop. So once everything in this online shop is gone, I will either be taking down the site and starting up a new site that will be just a gallery for all past and continuing art to cut the cost of this site, or I will be taking down this site completely, starting a new one with just a gallery, and will only be selling my pieces that I do end up creating, through my Etsy or by contacting me through social media or email when I post something, and they will be listed as true worth. I will be willing to take a contact list of people who are wanting to be notified of new pieces. But I want to say thank you to the people who continued to support my work over the years! Maybe you will be able to sport some of my skin art one day! Here’s to the next chapter <3

From The Strange & Fanged, To The Fun & Furry...But Mostly Strange & Fanged
I make monster hearts for Valentine's day, Jack-o-lanterns & masks for Halloween, Rotten painted eggs for Easter, Evil Snowmen for Winter, Cupcakes for Birthdays, Dabbers for stoners & much more! Every sculpture and painting is a one-of-a-kind original piece of art!

Each piece is a hand sculpted & hand painted ONE OF A KIND! Such as this dilophofloras plant. I can take any of your favorite characters, animals, creatures, etc..., and mash it into a plant sculpture to create something NOBODY ELSE has or has ever seen before! Check out all my themed plant mashups in the photo gallery
Pets With Petals
No. this is not taxidermy...it's clay. Did you, or do you have a friend, that recently lost a pet? This is a great way to remember them. A custom pet sculpture. Each piece is hand sculpted and hand painted using reference photos of the pet. (See Photo Gallery).
You must have good quality photos of your pet. Both sides of face, top of head, and front of face. Contact me by email with photos of the pet. No added filters, overexposed, underexposed, or blurry pictures, please.
