    Monster-Making as a process of self-discovery from sculpture to painting to puppets. Developing the personalities of all the “Me-Monsters” as fabric hand puppets. Read Less
    Published:
“Me-Monsters” is a project about self-discovery.  I have tried to discover my true self underneath my egocentric persona.  This required taking off the layers of outworn ideas of my identity and delving deeper.  I dissected my ego and came up with a ridiculous, obnoxious, funny-looking monster for each part.  To develop the personalities of my “Me-Monsters,” I turned to creating each monster as a small hand puppet.

The seven "Me-Monsters" are re-created and brought to life as hand puppets using foam, fabrics, and polymer clay.
