Cuddly Rigor Mortis is Kristin Tercek. In 1992, the year after I graduated NYU Film School, I met my husband, Ed Mironiuk. Eleven months later we started our own company, Cha-Pow! digital ink and paint, coloring animation for Coke commercials, Elmo's World and Saturday Night Live, to name a few.

In late 2005, as a hobby, I started Cuddly Rigor Mortis LLC, hand making plush dolls of my own creation. I had never sewn anything before in my life. I did little to no promotion and yet had my fair share of exposure. Gallery shows, magazines and fans found me from all over the world.

After 3 and a half years of sewing the same patterns over and over again in my spare time, I needed a break. Painting was calling me and I found myself able to explore some deeper themes that I never could with fabric. I had taught myself how to paint when I was eleven and it's been waiting patiently for me to get to this point. I'm older, filled with inspiration I never had access to and a brand new appreciation for it. So I offer up a glimpse at what's been swimming around inside my head for a long time. And if it seems just cute and happy, please keep looking. I'm sure you'll notice something quite horrific soon enough.
