PERSONAL SCULPTURAL WORKS

Created long before the current tattoo popularity is TATTOO PARLOR. Made in 1985, it is a 1/12 scale diorama with working lights. The full body tattoo designs are based on symbolism and alchemy, and meticulously painted on the 6 inch high female figure sculpture. The JUVENILE IGUONODON dinosaur was sculpted in Sculpey polymer clay, and has glass taxedermy eyes. It currently has a base coat of grey paint, someday I plan to give it a full color paint job.

The behind the scenes story of the TATTOO PARLOR diorama can be found on my creative process blog.
