Every year, I see pushy advertisement for sellers on all e-commerce platforms to help prepare for the end-of-year holiday rush.

Miniature and jewelry has been sort of a practice playground for me. When I first started working with polymer clay, I was looking to test the material and see its limits. Miniature is a great way to do this since it allows to use minimum of the material, and usually takes less time than a…

This whimsical wall sculpture is a part of the “Sea Creatures” series. This star whale is a magical creature, and she travels through space and worlds by navigating through clouds and stars.

This mixed media sculpture would make a great gift for sea lovers. The dolphin is hand sculpted out of polymer clay, then painted, and varnished.

I’ve been trying to fully devote myself to art in the past two years. I’m trying to learn and practice as much as I can. However, workshops, classes and art supplies cost presents a certain financial challenge. If you like my work and want to support me, I would truly appreciate it! I have a few tiers set up on Patreon or even just sharing my art or social media pages would help a lot. Thank you so much!
