My dear husky Kiba died in my arms last August and I said "no more", and decided to swear off dogs forever because they are heartbreakers.

That lasted about four months.

This is my darling puppy Carmen.  She is about 4 months old and is already amazing and smart and funny and SO fluffy.  She's a miniature American Shepherd (basically a mini Australian Shepherd) and will be the smallest dog I've ever had.  I kind of miss my big guy, but she really is so darn cute.  :)

Carmen Profile by merimask

She already walks nicely on lead, catches a little fabric frisbee, does several basic obedience things, is house trained, and LOVES cuddles.  She's so different from a husky, it's amazing.

Love never dies.

I'm a self-representing artist from western New York. Self taught in the art of leather maskmaking, I've been working exclusively with leather sculpture for over twenty years.

In 2006, I created several designs for Cirque Du Soleil. Currently, a synthetic version of my mask "Frivole" is in mass production and available in Cirque Du Soleil gifts shops everywhere.

In 2008, I was invited to create over fifty exclusive masks for the Muscle Musical production "Magicarade", in Tokyo Japan. I appeared on several national Japanese television shows with my masks throughout the 2008-2009 holiday season.

In October of 2009, I appeared on the Martha Stewart Show and demonstrated my mask-making technique on live national television.

In 2010, I was commissioned to create several wolf masks for Halloween season window displays throughout the United States. The masks were featured in Ralph Lauren Rugby store windows everywhere.

In 2011, A quartet of my white wolves were featured in an international cosmetics advertising campaign. The wolf masks were used in a fashion photo shoot for Lise Watier Cosmetiques "Neiges" perfume, shot in Toronto. The advertisements appeared throughout Canada during the 2011 holiday season. You can see YouTube videos of the photo shoot here:

In 2011, I designed four owl masks for an up and coming UK hip-hop group called The Four Owls. Currently, the masks can be seen in performances and videos all throughout Europe and the UK.
Video for the second single 'Not Like Before', taken from 'The Four Owls' debut album 'Nature's Greatest Mystery' on High Focus Records, 5th December. Video directed, filmed and edited by Harry Wheeler. Video can be seen here:

Also in 2011, my white fox mask was featured in an independent film; "White Fox Mask". A GWYCKY FILMS production...official website here: www.gwyckyfilms.com/home.html
The movie has just premiered at the American Film Festival in Poland.

In the summer of 2012, I was commissioned to produce designs for the Metropolitan Opera. My Anubis masks appeared on stage (and simulcast in movie theaters across the world) in the 2013 production of "Rigoletto".

Also in 2013, my black fox mask appeared on episode 304 of the ABC hit TV show "Once Upon A Time".
