Not your ordinary figurines and cake toppers! I hand sculpt bespoke figurines and cake toppers that resemble real people. What's special about my figurines is they tell a story. I capture them in mid-action, and often gravity defying. I don't use moulds. Every piece is one of a kind. Visit my website at and Facebook page at
