SVA graduate Joanne Hayes has a true knack for melding realism with a fairy tale fantasy world creating a dark and dreamy experience.
My work is mix of hand made sculpted pieces in a variety of materials that create different textures and accents of beauty. Puppetry and sculpture are rewarding mediums to work with, for the artist defines real form and volume that is capable of movement and life. I use a mixture of Sculpeys, Paper clay, and natural clays over wire and foil armatures to produce original pieces. Often I make silicone molds to reproduce sculptures with liquid plastics and resin. I’ve worked with small to very large scale pieces, including puppets, and am available for commissions and alternative projects. My educational background is in Illustration from the School of Visual Arts in NYC. I also am available for painting and drawing commissions.
