Whether it's a historical or fantasy piece, my goal is to make that piece appear as realistic as possible. My enjoyment is to take common items found around the workshop,house, and yard and use them to fabricate/enhance my models. A technique where a root can serve as the basis for a tree, or tea and oregano can act as leaf litter. My imagination is the only limitation of what can be.
I tend to use both traditional and nontraditional modeling material, and have found wood ,styrofoam, and Bondo to be more than suitable sculptural mediums. Realistic small scale fabrication is an art form and I am more than willing to share what I know.
