The greatest creations are those that as you create them, you get lost in your thoughts, by the time you're tired of thinking you're holding in your hands, something from deep within...

Welcome inside my head, my heart...

New Humanoid Creature Bust- WIP

Hi Everyone :) Hope you are all enjoying the Holiday Season so far. As promised, here I am with another update :D

I posted a quick pic of her on FB when I first started this piece but since she's different on each side and quite further along, here are some updated, additional pics. My Apologies for the off lighting. Absolutely loved sculpting it.

Thanks so much for visiting!

I'm back! With lots to share :D

Hi Everyone :)

It's been a while...apparently when you have too many images stored on picasa you can no longer update your blog with photos. I finally moved them and am super excited to be back. I have lots of new work to share!

Here are my newest ornaments and sculptures. They're currently in my Etsy shoppe with Free shipping! There you will also find additional photos and details on each piece and its creation... :)

Seahorse Dragon Sculpture

Here's some additional views:

Creepy Christmas Creature!!? :)

What a weird and festive creature huh! :) He's got a little skull tucked under his arm.

Snow and Crackled Ice Dragon
He has a crackled ice heart embedded in his chest and is holding a chunk of ice.

"Frozen water" wings!

I'll be listing some of my other mixed media work and sculptures in my store later this week but I also have some new creature WIP's to share. I will do my best to update more frequently as time permits. I occasionally post quick updates on FB too (Sprite Hansen). A giveaway will be coming soon as a little thank you to my friends and followers so please stay tuned!

I'm just getting back into blogging and would love to hear from you!
Thank you so much for visiting...
Big hugs,

An update! :D

Well hello there! :)

I can't even believe how much time has passed since my last post, so much has happened! Let's catch up quick but mostly start fresh shall we? :)

After a long wait of knowing it was coming, I was laid off. Hoping it's the universes way of putting me on a more creative, happier path. I'm already amazed at how much more I can accomplish without the almost 4 hour a day commute. Here's a sneak peak at some of the random WIPs started just last week.

Go figure, in the middle of sculpting the weird creature head, out comes this cute little mousey sculpt! What the...hee hee :)

Oh! I have some exciting and fun news to share!! I'll be doing a virtual Halloween studio tour in October, created and coordinated by my new friend Karen who I met at the show, she adopted my creature piece! He now lives in Canada and loves it there :)

The tour begins October first and benefits Bat conservation! How cool is that?!
I will have a few pieces available for purchase :)

For more info please visit:
If you're an artist interested in participating check out this link

BTW, I(finally) got a new computer, so I'm hoping between that and having more time, I should be able to visit with all of you more often, create more and share pictures more frequently :)

As always, thanks so much for visiting!!
Have a super fantastic and wonderfully creative day :)

Big hugs,

WIPS for PA Show :D Earth beings, a giant dragonfly and... a foot. :D

Making some progress on a few pieces, woo hoo!! Tremendous amount to do yet but fun fun!

I was trying to determine whether or not crappy pics were better than no pics and decided, yes, yes they are :D So here are a few.

A being, either emerging from the earth or dissolving into it.

A giant dragonfly i started a few years ago and then sat on a shelf.
I'm really enjoying working on him again! His body still needs alot of work but I couldnt resist playing with and experimenting with his wings :)

An earth healer..and certainly a piece of me. Its hard to make out the details sculpted on the back but hopefully you can see her partially deformed wings...

And a foot for the dragon creature thing, well the start of one anyway ;)

Have a super day everyone and thanks so much for visiting!

Hello!! and some news! :D

Hi Everyone!!

I cannot believe so much time has passed? lapsed? vanished? since my last blog post! Good gawd! My apologies and thanks for sticking with me regardless of my absence :) Over the past few months so much has happened we are just going to start fresh okie dokie?.....

How is everyone!? :) I hope super!

I just got back from Sherry & Jean's RenoIowa retreat, it was my first time in Reno and the retreat was absolutely amazing! I learned a ton, thoroughly enjoyed being with familiar friends, making new ones and I finally got to meet two of my close friends after only knowing them online~for 6 years, AWESOME!

Hopefully I'll get a slide show up soon. Cannot say enough positive things about these teachers or the experience. and guess what? They added another retreat! East Coast -New York in July and I cannot wait - I am in NY! WOO HOO GO ME! If you'd like to check out and/or reserve your spot at one of the retreats here's the link: Seriously amazing.

Also I have some news... :) I am doing my very first show in May in PA! I'm very excited and of course a tad nervous, especially since its a month away and guess who doesn't have a thing made/finished yet? HA HA HA Guess who wont be sleeping much until after the show?

If you are attending or are in the area and can stop by please let me know so I know to look for you. I would sooooo love to see some familiar faces and /or meet you!! Here is the link

As for creating, well, since my last post/ pics in June thankfully I've started quite a few new pieces and even finished a couple! So I'm thinking it might be fun to randomly snap pictures around the studio including the stuff I usually don't show... screw reservation! :) At the moment, my computer is fried so until I get the part to fix it, here are a few random wip pics that were in my cell camera you may or may not have already seen ;)

Weird lil gourd head creature - paperclay & plastercloth

My first start at a pair of paperclay hands -

Random Body Parts, Sculpted feathers, the start of a raven mask and a teeeeny tiny dragon

Lil dragon in a half shell who will probably be removed and put into something else later...

and I guess that's it for now.. more very soon!

As always, thanks so much for visiting!! Hopefully I'll be able to post and share more frequently once things settle down a bit.

LOVE and big hugs :)
