My work falls into five broad categories.
Integrating engineering with aesthetics

 

PUPPETS

Marionettes & Others

I'm known worldwide as a marionette builder but have a long history with mouth puppets, rod puppets, shadows, Vietnamese Water-Puppets, automata, and large costumes or stage puppets.

COSTUMES

Puppeted,+ Masks

Largely for theater, still photography, and events, I have been making costumes with puppeted elements, lighting and rigorous use (acrobatics & tumbling) for about 20 years. built for ease of wear, comfort, and to impress.

Costumes

PROPS

Sets & Miniatures

From prop-objects, stage weapons, and technology to models, miniatures, set-design and built environments, I have been making objects for film, photography, and theater for well over a decade.

ILLUSTRATION

Illustrations for book and album covers, comics and games, posters and flyers, comics and graphic novels, concept and character development--even some animation; more than 30 years experience using a vast array of media, from Traditional to digital.
