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: KAZ-moe-sawr-us Diet: Herbivore (Plant-Eater) Name Means: "chasm lizard" Length: 16 Feet (5 m) Height: 10 Feet (3 m) Weight: 3 tons (2700 kilos) Time: Cretaceous - 75 MYA
Chasmosaurus was the oldest of the long-frilled, horned ceratopsian dinosaurs, whose family includes Triceratops. It was a medium-sized plant eater that had a long neck frill with large holes in the bone and narrow structures to support the weight of the frill. It would have had skin stretched over the holes in its frill. Chasmosaurus had medium-sized horns over its eyes, and a smaller nose horn.
Judging from the monotypic bone beds of the Chasmosaurus fossils, this animal traveled in single species herds. Since the frill of a Chasmosaurus would not be a very effective defensive weapon, there is speculation that it may have been used for identification and attracting mates. New discoveries suggest the possibility that Chasmosaurus and Pentaceratops might belong in the same genus.
