Welcome to the home of the Beastlies!
Each little monster is hand‐sculpted, unique, and waiting to be adopted!
Working on getting Beastlies ready for the shop! I’ll aim to make them live tonight at 6pm, PST. This is the rest of the batch.

Someone’s starting to look a bit more sinister…
Some of the eyes from Dubious Beasts: Trophy Room (opening August in Oregon)
What’s more tedious: sanding something perfectly smooth or adding tiny texture detail? How about sanding perfectly smooth and THEN deciding, no, it needs skin texture?
I’m working on a series of tiny cast gypsum creatures, meant to be held, debuting at my @archimedesgallery show in two weeks!
Look at the brothers and sisters of my precious son.
Look. Look at my tiny son. I did not make him. @genkigecko is the artist who made him. He is a worry stone without worries of his own, he is a glorious reclining odalisque, a Zuni fetish with a sense of humor. Eva gifted him to me and he’s my favorite thing. Eva has a show opening this Saturday at @archimedesgallery in Oregon! She has a whole series of these little guys, along with her larger ceramic and bronze works. Go seeeee!
A little journal entry, I guess?
I dunno, maybe you’re interested in little professional artist life stuff? Maybe not. Carry on.
On Quadra Island, my eyes would open around 6 o’clock every morning. That’s not normal for me, and often I’d been up much later than normal the night before these mornings. I’d wander the little walk from my bus to the house. I’d quietly gather up the stray cups and wine glasses left around from the night before, empty and then refill the dishwasher (clanking as little as possible), get a loaf of banana bread or a batch of scones into the oven, put a kettle on, and then maybe read a little while waiting for other people to wake up (though usually someone stumbled in around the time the kettle was just starting to get warm).
Back here at home, my alarm goes off, and I snooze it again and again. If I’m still in bed, I’m not yet on the clock, in my mind. I haven’t yet started to fall farther and farther behind on my daily quota of a Beastlies and list of tasks for other projects and gallery shows that I’m not really on top of. This is not a good way to deal with having too much on your plate, TURNS OUT, but my willpower doesn’t seem to actually turn on until I am absolutely, 100% awake. Once I get up, I mostly just put on sweatpants and sit down to work. No dish-doing, definitely no banana bread (As delighted as I am to feed other people, I am often nearly indifferent to feeding myself. Is there a granola bar or something around? No? Eh).
Anyway, I don’t have a solid conclusion to this. I just have too much to do, and I spent the time writing this instead of doing it so now I feel guilty. WELPPPP.
Yes truly, Beastlies are happening today. They’ll be in the shop at 1pm PST today! Here we have the second half of ‘em.
