I merged my love of large hand-building with my love of dogs by creating my own dogs in clay, then friends’ dogs and that was the start of MudPups. Every dog has a story and creating that story is my particular pleasure. As a detail-driven sculptor, I study photography, research anatomy, colouring and mannerisms and then meld this information with the owners stories to capture the personality of a much-loved pet. Each sculpture is unique and is hand-shaped, stained and fired at my home studio in Gympie, Queensland.
