Maternity is a life journey unlike any other, filled with many exciting milestones that culminate in the arrival of a parent’s greatest gift. As a mother who has been on this journey, years later my only regret is that I don’t have a memento like a personalized belly cast to share with my children and to remind me of my pregnancy — a highlight of my life.
To capture this beautiful memory, I meet with the motherto-be and create her one-of-a-kind belly cast using my own sculpting recipe. The cast then becomes a canvas on which I am able to use art to convey the mother’s custom, personalized story about her maternal journey that can be shared with future generations.
Each commissioned cast is crafted with the highest quality, hand-picked materials to preserve the timeless keepsake. It would be an honor for me to be invited to take part in your special journey.
