Sam Eiler’s family realized he was an artist at three years old, when his mother found him carving SpongeBob SquarePants into their dining room table. Sam continues to be inspired by illustrated characters and works in a wide variety of two and three-dimensional mediums, including drawing, ceramics, and puppet making. Sam’s work with puppets has evolved from a simple sock turned Kermit to fully realized felt and wire personalities. Sam has been a SAGE studio artist since 2018.
"I make cartoon art and muppet art. Making art makes me happy. My dream is to become a Broadway show muppeteer and a voice actor."
