Jumbled Animal Paper Clay Mounts
Everyone deserves to live in make believe. Escape from reality and embrace whimsy. Let me introduce my nine new unique paper clay mounts that make a bold creative statement. They are meticulously imagined into wild and enchanting creatures.
This is the process I use. A pine board is cut, glued and sanded into a plaque. Wire and threaded rods are then inserted, cut and bent to form the armature. Aluminum foil and styrofoam are used to create the base shape before they are sculpted with paper clay. The clay is sculpted, sanded, drilled and tweaked until a creature is born. The final touch is the acrylic paint that brings the mount to life. For protection and added shimmer, each mount is coated in a gloss or mat varnish.
The mounts are personalized with real antlers found in the woods, feathers, collars or a bow tie - giving the mount a final touch of whimsy. Not surprisingly, the mounts each have a unique name and their own story. Of course.
Each of these mounts was painstakingly created from within me with love and care and a great deal of patience and time. I consider each one to be part of me – part of my family. I hope they make you smile.

Beesquito and the Blue Lemupard
'Beesquito was petrified of the dark and scary noises. This is not surprising because there was a lemupard living under the bed. A gigantic, evil blue lemupard with giant teeth and a dreadful grin.'
My sister Susan and I are working on our new Beesquito and the Jumbimals book. Here is a preliminary illustration to give you a taste of what's to come.
Working title 'Beesquito and the Blue Lemupard'. A lemupard is a part lemur part leopard jumbimal - obviously.
I hope you don't have a blue lemupard under your bed ...
