For some reason quite a few shoppers at the artist market think I'm a puppeteer. Let's get one thing straight, I love making puppets but I'm no puppeteer. I love seeing how other people respond and interact with the things I make. It is so much fun to see how something that comes from my imagination can spark imagination in other people. How someone chooses to animate one of my creations is always amusing, and its different for every person, which I think is key. The things I make are meant for interactive, open-ended, and imaginative play. I provide the starting point for other people's creativity. If I were the puppeteer then I wouldn't leave room for other people to use their own imagination. And that's that.
You can now find two new puppets in my etsy shop. Foxy Loxy and a little Lion.
