I have submitted designs for Spring of 2012 and I just received word that 7 of my designs will be picked up for reproduction. It is amazing to me to think that my designs will be in stores across the US, possibly even internationally! Now, if I could just get Tim Burton to "friend" me on Facebook, I could pitch him about making a movie together (hey, if I'm gonna dream, I'm gonna dream BIG!).
It boggles my mind that right now my designs are half-way around the world in China being prepared for sample reproduction. I pride myself on the fact that my designs are hand-sculpted and that each and every piece I make is a unique piece of art. This will not change. I will continue to make my one-of-a-kind creations for sale online and at art shows - in fact, I have more shows lined up this year than ever before! I feel that this licensing deal is a way to get my designs and name out to a much wider audience than I could have ever of done on my own. Luckily, the company gives me final say on all pieces that will be reproduced so that I can ensure that the quality will meet my standards.
Now that I've finished the Spring 2012 line, I'm already working on Fall 2012! Here is small sample of what I've got in store...
I'm so appreciative of all my fans and collectors. Your kind words of encouragement and praise are the fuel that keeps me creating. Thanks for being with me on this exciting adventure!
