The crocodile, dragon, polar bear, wolf , moose and puffin are designed by Chris Lutter Gardella of Puppet Farm Arts in Minneapolis, MN. Chris Lutter has been my mentor for the past four years. I have learned so much assisting him in the creation of his magnificent puppets. For the above mentioned projects, I was lead production artist in charge of materials, fabrication, cladding and painting.
TOOEY a glorious man eating plant puppet, was designed and made by me and Debbie Norgaarden.
I love building these oversized puppets handled by one or more puppeteers. I would like to move into making artistic puppet mascots that would be used at sporting events to rally the fans.
