Artist Statement

With my handcrafted puppets and marionettes and original stories, I have the privilege of sharing my love of theatre, puppetry, and storytelling with families throughout Illinois. Because it can be difficult for working parents to introduce their children to art and theatre experiences in a tangible way, I take pride in bringing professional puppet theatre to these children. I can share stories that spark their imaginations and, most importantly, I can inspire and encourage them to create their own puppets and tell their own stories.
