While attending college at UC Davis, I met some incredible people who were avid designer toy collectors.  It was then I was introduced to my first Munny made by the talented Huck Gee. I painted my first Munny in 2009 and since then, I have expanded my use in different mediums to further customize my figurines.​ Now during my spare time, I take  commission orders  that are often used for cake toppers, or simply just given as a personalized gift. 

So share with me your most visionary ideas, and let me create something unique; something one-of-a-kind that will set your gift apart from all others.


Born and raised in San Francisco, my love for the arts and crafts started at a young age.  When I was 5 years old, I practiced drawing Ariel's (from The Little Mermaid) hair to capture the flow and texture when in water.  I also re-created a Nintendo Entertainment System out of cardboard paper, and even accessorized it with two gaming controllers, and of course, The Little Mermaid game pak. Can you guess what my favorite Disney movie was? 

In elementary school, I would put 100% into my dioramas, or any crafty projects that came my way. My love affair with clay began when I started high school.  I was curious in learning how to use the pottery wheel, so I enrolled into a ceramics class; then into advanced ceramics for another 2 years. 

​Ironically, I never worked on the pottery wheel during those three years.  Instead, I actually discovered that I enjoyed working on  reclining sculptures, teapots made with clay coils, and anything that involved with just using my hands and some boxwood tools. ​
