About Geahk

I'm a Puppeteer, writer, director, costumer and multi-media artist. I have dabbled in mediums across drawing and illustration to sculpting and editing. I've always been attracted to trying new mediums and new materials. I am unable to settle on any one material or art form.

When I discovered Puppets I found that every artform that had ever interested me could be applied to it. If I wanted to write a story, it could be used in a puppet show. If I wanted to paint, there were plenty of backdrops to do. I could build miniature furniture, machines, costumes and environments. It satisfied my interest in woodworking, joinery, sculpture, costume and models. I found it was an avenue into other art forms I had never considered: Sound Design, Lighting, even Film. I keep finding new things to play with and ways to create.

My world is now filled with puppets! I run a small non-profit marionette company which brings dark and beautiful, intimate shows to adult audiences. Our one of a kind company does small, elaborate shows filled with splendid set pieces and sinister characters populating complex and layered stories.

I run a second business that specializes in costumes, props and puppets for film and theater called gb Designs. We have done work for Nike, The Oregon Lottery and Brooks as well as many others.
