Created for Missy Elliott’s video,”Why I Still Love You”, released 1/16/2020

In late November of 2019, I was contacted with a very special request. I was asked to create a sculpture of Missy Elliott to be used in the filming of a new music video…but I was only given 4 days to complete it. Working with a variety of materials during 14 hour days, I delivered “Gold Missy” to the set with gold paint still under my fingernails on the morning of the shoot.

Happily, the director and art director were pleased with the sculpture, but the I knew I’d passed the test when Missy herself hugged me and said she loved it!

Look for me in the video, in the museum scene…I’m the one with silver hair.
