These creatures are made using wire armatures, hand-sculpted feet and faces, hand-dyed faux fur, and hand-painted glass eyes. I have been making and selling these creatures since high school (2014). They range in size from 8cm to 1m tall.
The art of collecting, cleaning, and reassembling skeletons into fantasy creatures. They are made from humanely sourced mice and rat bones, guinea fowl feathers, and sculpted bases. I learnt the fundamentals of skeletal articulation under the instruction of Gerard Geer.
My skills in knifemaking are rudimentary. Under the mentorship of a local manual arts teacher, I was able to improve my understanding of metalwork, woodwork, and competency with various power tools and machinery.
In 2017, I studied prosthetic makeup at the Australian Institute of Creative Design. I have since competed internationally, and worked on a variety of small productions wherein I designed, sculpted, moulded, ran, and applied prosthetics.
Costumery and Props
As a part of my prosthetic makeup shoots and various short films, I would often end up making costume pieces for my characters, including a articulated, blinking dragon suit, a dress made of sea litter, and a bone crown consisting of over 300 individually sculpted bones.
