Interested in a Custom Puppet?
Strategies for retirement
I was commissioned by Strategies for Retirement, whose goal is to develop, implement, and monitor an individualized retirement strategy for their clients, to create a puppet couple for use in branding events and materials. Included are the original design illustration and some images related to the project.
The character of Sam Squatch was built for one of my GFA classes at MICA. I designed Sam as a way for me to expand upon my established puppet building techniques while also incorporating new methods of patterning, building, and design.
The Nepi clown
During the Summer of 2019, I participated in the New England Puppet Intensive in North Adams, MA, a program in which participants dove deeper into sculpting, mold-making, and casting processes, exploring the interchange between performance and design. The result of the week-long intensive, a vaudeville-style clown, is displayed here.
