Are you a scaredy cat?

Portland’s Gesine Kratzner been sculpting squiggly polymer creatures for as long as she can remember.

If you’re feeling scared and tentative about your own work, take a look at the bio of this talented illustrator and see how she’s turned silly squiggles into an impressive career.

Gesine’s been an an animation professional for 18 years, lending her design sense to ad campaigns, short films, sculptures and paintings and exhibiting her work in galleries in Oregon and California. She has an Etsy shop, Blobhouse, as well.

Thanks for Randee Ketzel for introducing us to this polymer artist.

        I’ve always thought that the first purpose of art is to make you think about something in a different way–but the corollary should probably be that it also makes you laugh with astonishment! On all counts, Gesine succeeds.
