Have a love for sewing and creating. Started making puppets 9 years ago and now I enjoy it more than most things. I get great pleasure out of thinking up a puppet and then challenging myself to bring it to life.
What First Got Me Interested in Puppetry
I got introduced into puppetry by a friend who had made one at a puppet clinic. We needed some for a preformance idea and I thought, hey I can make them. I started with one simple pattern and evolved it to many different puppets over the years. Now I have actually had a few puppet clinic and helped others develope a supply of puppets for whatever need.
My Puppetry (or Puppet) Hero
I don't actually lean towards any specific one. All of them catch my attention. I always look closely at them and diesect them with my eyes, asking myself could I make that or how did they do that? I appreciate a detail and creative puppet.
If I Were a Puppet, I'd Be...
I'd be a multi colored, high spirited, make people laugh clown puppet. I love to make people smile.
More About Me:
I'm just some ordinary girl doing things that make me happy. Older than I look, living each day as it comes. I love a challenge and take on things with an attitude of perfect completion. I love it when things turn out right but also have a favorite saying: "Blessed is he who is flexible for he shall not be bent out of shape. (unless your a puppet of course)!
I'm alright. Doing my senior year of college. I also am a little too occupied to do very much with my puppets. I do however use them every week for a Kid Show being shot at our school's TV station so that's off to a good start I think. I just need to get off my lazy butt and make an audition tape to send to every puppetry company I hear about!
