What First Got Me Interested in Puppetry
A downtown columbus ohio department store called lazaraus.my mom used to take me when i was very young and i still remember some of the fantastic surreal images! One of the great puppeteers performing back then was Kathy Pipher who I would latter run across in the Columbus guild in the 1980's.I had a little performing troupe back then called the Gypsy Marionettes.
My Puppetry (or Puppet) Hero
any puppet /art pioneer, the Roses of Yellow Springs Richard Mccleod they allow the passion to live on.
