Artists & Creators

Clara Manfredi

I like to simplify things and say I'm a monster maker...but that sells things a bit short. I am an artist and I specialize in original creature design. I am also a story teller, I tell myself elaborate stories about how my creatures live, where they live, what they might eat, and who they are as I work. I am heavily influenced by Jim Henson and Brian Froud, I dreamed of designing creatures for Jim  Henson studios, but when life didn't allow for it I decided to go ahead and design creatures anyway. I work primarily in faux fur and polymer clay often adding other elements such as chain, bones (ethically sourced from a taxidermist), or natural items I find on walks.
