Pixar’s Ratatouille is probably one of my favorite movies, so I had an absolute blast creating my own version of the starring culinary rodent, Remy!
I also had the opportunity to create a tree frog! He was very different from any of the other animals I created (my first of the amphibious variety). I especially love his toes and eyes, which I hand-painted.
A loyal customer requested a custom version of Chauncy the Chef for her son, an amateur chef. So, I gave him a copper cooking pan (so adorable) and royal blue accents on his aprons!
This is Khari, my first attempt at needle felting a male lion! He stands about 7″ tall, and his mane is made from a combination of suri, Lincoln locks and merino wool. I also hand-painted his eyes in a pretty bronze-gold color, and I love the effect of it!
I was asked to create a purple and yellow unicorn for my mother-in-law; it’s the mascot of the cancer survivor’s group she’s in. I named her Nadia, which means hope. I sculpted her horn and hooves from polymer clay, and she has hand-painted glass eyes.
