Secret Springs Studio
Each leaf mask starts with a natural leaf impression on clay, then I hand sculpt the facial features and accents adding any additional leaves needed. After the curing process, each mask is enhanced using several different painting techniques that I developed over years of creating murals, faux finishes and canvas work. Once the paint has dried I apply a thin clear coat to protect the paint from fading. On the back I write the type of leaf and the location where it was found. Each unique piece is signed, numbered, and cataloged. All leaf masks can be hung indoors or outside. I use my love of nature to create leaf sculptures that give life to the fantasy and fumor I find in the world.
