LIZARDO DIABLO 11”L x 7½”W x 7”H

For the MIPCES catalog, Amy Zinman wrote:

“Just as the chameleon can change its appearance to blend into the environment, polymer clay can be mixed to create an infinite palette and shaped into endless forms. My piece, ‘Lizardo Diablo,’ allowed me to combine my love of polymer clay with my fascination with these beautiful reptiles and their ability to evoke a broad range of colors.”

I cannot remember a time in my life that I wasn't interested in looking at art, talking about art and the making of art. In 1990 I earned a Phd in art history at the University of Maryland. My first experiences with polymer clay were in 1992, but I consider my real work with the medium to date from 1999.
