I have been sculpting animals and creatures since 2001. In my decade-plus of experience, I have worked with a variety of sculpting media including polymer clays, wax, oil based clay, epoxy clays, and foam. I am also well versed in molding and casting.
From 2006-2012, I taught fine art for the 3D animation program at Full Sail University. I specialized in sculpting, but also taught life drawing, color theory, and concept art. I was involved in curriculum development as well as lecturing, class critique, evaluation, and practical lab work.
In 2013, I self published my first book, Creature Sculpt. This is a 200 page fully illustrated book that teaches the beginning and novice sculptor how to get started with their own original clay creations. In September 2014, Creature Sculpt will be republished as Fantasy Creatures in Clay by Impact Books. This newly designed and edited book will be available from major book retailers like Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
