Inside of the studio is finished. Working on the photo studio and then the second space now. Not much needs to be done thankfully except move the items in as we had them at the old studio but now we are working with a master plan!

It has been many years since I have sculpted and the opportunity came along to start up again with this commission for a Twisty the Clown, a character from American Horror Story: Freak Show. I remembered a lot and learned a lot and am very excited to jump into the next commission already.
Our business underwent some reconstruction this past week so that we can really focus on our goals and let go of things that were not working. Its nervewracking but exciting at the same time.
One of those goals is to get back to blogging- if you want to see more of the process of making Twisty from start to finish you can check out my gallery on Instagram.
Follow us on our adventures from Albuquerque, New Mexico. Enjoy!

A new year has brought many changes. Last year at this time we were going along smoothly before a car accident that would change the way my body works. 2014 was spent re-imagining and figuring out what I could do to keep working in what I love but within boundaries of injuries. Although there are no limits in your mind. Yes I am limited and its slow going, a lot of frustrating days but I know I will get where I am supposed to be even if it wasn't what I had in mind.
Opening a studio last October has allowed for some exciting new avenues. Here is what you can expect this year and many more:
Newly designed website with a shop for our original art. Still in the works so excuse the mess.
More leftover fabrics, patterns, props and supplies from past projects to be listed in our Artfire Store.
Original costumes for sale or rent.
Original artwork and sculptures for sale.
Venturing into sculpting after so many years has been uplifting. Having a lot of problems using my left arm and leg and working with a polymer clay has been therapeutic and allowed for less pain. You can see my version of 'Twisty the Clown from American Horror Story: Freak Show' in progress on my Instagram. Have a commission for him and some of the other 'freaks' which is really exciting.
A year long adventure coming up will be a photography and film project called 'Compendium 2015'. It will start at the end of this month and be monthly until next year. More information on that later!
We have not used the blog as often but plan on adding it to our social media updates. You can also find us on Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, DeviantArt, Pinterest and Twitter.
