Who Are We

What started as a one woman art project has grown into something that can only exist through the support and collaboration of a few good friends and a supportive fiance. 


Clara Manfredi

Just wants to make art that is touchable, accessible, and makes people smile. A lifelong fan of movies like The Labyrinth, The Dark Crystal, and The Last Unicorn She always wanted to do original creature/character design....and now with her fiance's support she is! Speaking of...........  


Matt Lanese

Supportive fiance, maker of cool things, and spreadsheet wrangler. Without Matt holding down the fort, keeping Clara grounded, and managing the tedious bits of running an art based business....there would be no monsters, no creatures, and no Clara at shows!



Jess came on as the show helper last year and we have to tell you she is magical! Clara does very poorly with crowds and it's hard to stay organized......Not our Jess, she is cool and collected. She is the organization guru at shows even keeping the paper money in order, no mean feat after Clara's been handling it! We are so excited to have her with us again this year.

There is also our good friend and amazing photographer Amber Patrick, You'll notice some of the pictures here are superior to the others....That's Amber's work. We've been taking the monsters on field trips to local greenhouses  and she has been taking pictures of them among the plants, We are in awe of the pictures she's been taking! We highly recommend going to her for any photography needs!
