I am currently closed for commissions.  My next openings will be available in mid-late April.  

I will no longer be accepting commissions for fan art.  That is, I will not sculpt any character or property that you yourself do not own the rights to or have explicit permission to use.  That means no more Pokemon, My Little Pony or League of Legends.  I will be happy to sculpt your pet, your favorite animal, your own original character, or will even help develop a character for you.  I will have new products and pricing available in a few months.  Keep a watch here for more information.

To read about how to apply for a commission slot and to read my full policy, please head over to my website for all the details.

PLEASE do not submit commission inquiries through deviantArt.  I only discuss commissions via email, which can be accessed on my website.  Additionally,  I do not accept points as payment for commissions.

Materials and Tools

Please read the description of any piece to see what materials I used for its construction.

My maquettes are constructed using Aves Apoxie SculptSuper Sculpey, and Sculpey Firm.  I also work with Monster Clay and create molds/casts from these sculpts.

My armatures consist of household aluminum foil, as well as aluminum armature wire.  I paint with Cel Vinylpaints, using both an airbrush and regular brushes.

I buy my wood bases at Jo-Ann, Michael's, and AC Moore.  They are available at most local craft stores in the US.  I am not familiar with where you can purchase them internationally, but factory direct craft sells wood bases and ships internationally.

For Supply Purchase, Try....

Concerning Sales

If a piece is for sale in my gallery, it will state so in the description.  If it does not mention being for sale, it was either a custom piece created for someone else or it has already been sold (or I am just not selling it!)  Please do not ask me to remake any pieces in my gallery; not only is this boring for me to do, it defeats much of the purpose of owning an original.  I do not mind sculpting the same character again, but it needs to be in a fresh light.

Check out the for sale section in my gallery to see a selection of works currently available for purchase.

A Note About Questions

I will no longer be responding to material related questions that can be answered with a simple Google search or that I have answered on this page.  I am not doing this to be mean.  I get a LOT of questions that I simply do not have the time to respond to.

If you have a questions about technique, PLEASE check my tutorials in my gallery to see that it isn't answered there first.  I put a lot of time and effort into those and they explain a majority of what I do.  

Group Requests

While I appreciate the motion,  I do not accept requests to unthemed groups or groups with themes that are irrelevant to the particular sculpture.  Please don't take it personally if I decline your group invitation.  I welcome themed group invitations, regardless of quality control.


Yes, I have comments turned off.  It is for a number of reasons, but mainly because I don't have the time to manage them.  If you really want to comment on a specific piece, feel free to send me a note or comment on the gallery page.


All sculpture photos are taken by my Husband, Joe Coleman :iconphantom42:

I was looking through some of your Pokémon sculptures and you have disabled your comments so I couldn't comment directly on my favourites.
I just wanted to say that your work is amazing and I really love your mega Absol, shiny Pokémon and LED sculptures. Your defiantly an inspiration to those who want to sculpt. :iconpervyzolaplz:

I found a few of your tutorials while looking for different ways to paint and sculpt my art dolls, and I just ordered both your books off Etsy! Really looking forward to reading them and learning more - your work is fantastic! "D

You are amazing. I got your book, Fantasy Creatures In Clay, for Christmas and it has revolutionized my techniques in sculpture. With the book's guidance I have completed two figurines and the experience of doing so was so simple and fun, with fantastic results. I only recently discovered you online and I just had to come by and say hi now that you've become somewhat of a hero and a role model to me. I just love your work. Its a little daunting seeing what an awesome and successful artist you are. It makes me wonder if I'll ever get that good. Everyone has to start somewhere, right? How did you start out, if you don't mind my asking?

Thank you so much for your kind words!  I am really happy to hear that you are getting so much use out of FCiC and even happier to inspire!  It's actually really hard for me to remember how/why I started sculpting.  I remember hating sculpture in highschool, but I found myself getting so bored with drawing and 2D art.  I just sorta picked it up one day and never turned back!  It's true, we all have to start somewhere.  And the journey never ends.  Even though I have people like yourself that look to me for inspiration, I still know I have SO much to learn as an artist and a lot of growing to do.
