Darren’s larger-than-life exuberance is easy to see in his art, as is his sense of humor. He loves being part of the Cedars puppet crew and is dedicated to making puppets and props. He contributes a non-stop flow of ideas, some impossible, some clever, some humorous. He frequently talks about using puppetry to reach out to others; he wants to entertain bedridden people in hospitals and teach children in schools to make their own puppets. Stop motion animation is proving to be another exciting vehicle for Darren’s talents.
