I am a self-taught artist from the Midwest; I moved to the Pacific Northwest almost 10 years ago and I've been in love ever since.

Life, nature and humor have always influenced my art. I gravitate more towards the three dimensional. I like creating something that has mass and life to it--a piece you can look at and think up endless storylines for. 

I work with a range of mediums, including: acrylic paint, raw wool, yarn... old siding from a house. I like repurposing discarded materials and try to incorporate them as much as possible. I use Sculpey for all sculpted work, but don't use molds so each piece has its own personality.

Ever since I was little I liked making things. I just want to create and if people find joy in what I do, then gravy. 


I am available to do commisioned work.(contact info: terastenzel@yahoo.com) if you see something  that has already sold and would still like it I can try to duplicate it.

Thank you for looking.

Go create, be curious and above all be kind!
