Welcome - I hope you enjoy viewing my work. I modify most of my figure kits so that they wind up quite different from the original. (And there is a lot more here than just dinosaurs - so browse on!) I re-discovered the joy of art in mid-life and its been a joy to create and share my vision with others. Art, like all creative gifts, exists to be shared so as to enrich the lives of others.
So this website is my gift to you. If you have an interest in art/sculpting/modeling of all kinds of subjects, I would recommend that you check out the Internet Figure Modeling Clubhouse at
INTERNET CLUBHOUSE and also see
At both sites you will find incredible artists and sculptors, some nationally known. Their work will leave you in awe.
Thank you for stopping by!

Pronounced: Tore - o - Sore - us Diet: Herbivore (Plant-Eater) Name Means: "Piercing Lizard" Length: 25 feet (8 m) Height: 8 feet (2.7 m) Weight : 7 tons (12,000 kilos) Time: Late Cretaceous – 68-67 MYA
Torosaurus had the largest skull of any animal that ever walked the Earth! With its large frill and pointed beak, it could grown more than 9 feet (3 m) long. It had a huge frill and long horns over its eyes. It was about the same size as the most famous member of its family, Triceratops.
In fact, these dinosaurs were very closely related and one of the few differences was that Torosaurus had large openings in its frill. This could have been to make it lighter since it was so big. As a member of one of the most successful dinosaur families, Torosaurus shared many characteristics with the ceratopsians. It was a large, stocky herbivore that fed on plants growing low to the ground. It used its sharp beak to strip the plants and its banks of cheek teeth to pulverize them. Torosaurus was likely a herd-dwelling animal. Torosaurus's frill was huge. It would have made an impressive display when tilted up, perpendicular to the ground. It is possible that it was used as a method of intimidation or for attracting mates, or both. It would also have provided protection to the neck and upper back when attacked from above.
