ABOUT

Hi, I'm Elizabeth. A self taught sculptor of miniature figurines. My primary medium is a polymer clay called Cosclay. Without getting too philosophical, here's my sculpting philosophy: 

Sculpting is 

Sharing 

My happy place

With you.

I began sculpting when I was 2 years old. After a family funeral, my mom found me in the kitchen making the entire scene out of playable-dough. In 3rd grade I was introduced to polymer clay, and haven't stopped working with it since. Spending many of of my childhood years in hospitals, sculpting helped me process what was beyond my control. So, I made it my mission to “share the love of sculpting”.

Now I use my 18 years of polymer clay experience to create custom mini portraits, accessory style sculptures, teach workshops, produce Youtube tutorials and make DIY Sculpting Kits because: "If you can turn a blob of clay into something beautiful just think of what else you can accomplish or overcome.”

Meet The Woman Behind

MINIEZSHOP

  • What's The Story Behind The Name?
    My Dad helped me create the name with this logic: I sculpt MINI creations, my initials are E Z & it's a SHOP. Hence, MINI EZ SHOP. My fourteen year old self was very pleased with that combination and my current self still adores the name.
  • How Long Have You Been Sculpting?
    When I was two years old my family went to a funeral. The next day, I had created an entire cemetery complete with a procession line & flowers out of playable dough. Since, sculpting has always been a way for me to process the complexities, sorrows & beauties of life.
  • Did You Study The Arts?
    My Bachelor's Degree is in Marketing & Entrepreneurship and my previous vocation was a General Contractor. So, aside from a lovely art class in middle school, I've had no formal training in the arts. One may say "self taught" but saying so might discount some of the best teachers: Experience & Observation.
  • Do You Make Everything?
    I (Elizabeth) sculpt everything by hand, so each Miniezshop piece is entirely one of a kind. Miniezshops DIY Sculpting Kits are designed and sourced by myself, packaged in-house.
  • Who Runs Miniezshop?
    I have some fantastic mentors & helpers but nearly everything Miniezshop currently offers has been designed, created & is run by myself. From the product photos to editing how-to-videos and from designing this website to managing the finances. I enjoy wearing many hats.
