Animals in my life and art

A quick browse through my studio will be enough to tell you that I love animals.  My cats, Ozzy and Cedric, are in my avatar, and a sculpture of my ferret Ziggy is featured on my banner.  The picture above is Cedric, after a bit of catnip.Laughing I've had pets ever since I was a young child, and simply can't imagine life without animals.  It wasn't until I got Katherine Dewey's "Creating Lifelike Animals in Polymer Clay" that I felt a could sculpt a truly realistic animal.  You'll find many animal sculptures in my studio that were created with guidance from that book.  I also enjoy creating whimsical and fantasy animals- I have several dragon sculptures available.  And then there are stuffed animals, which I never really grew out of.  Once I learned how to sew and follow a pattern I made all sorts of stuffed animals, some to keep for myself and some to give as gifts.  When I (finally) figured out how to knit, and consequently found some books on knitting stuffed toys, I found a new avenue for my creativity.  Below are some of the animals available in my studio.  Just click on the picture to go directly to the listing.
