Chace began making dinosaurs around the age of 14 when he got “play clay” as a Christmas gift. When asked what he enjoys about dinosaurs he said he found an intensity about the creatures that inspired him to think about “their behavior and design – how they were made”. He also knows that his talent and creativity makes others happy, and
he enjoys sharing his creative output with his friends.
Chace gravitates towards clay, but this Buffalonian has a natural ability and understanding of almost every material introduced to him. He has created excellent sculptures and drawings with many materials such as tissue paper, linoleum block prints, and charcoal. His interests extend beyond dinosaurs to mythical beasts, monsters, and cartoons as well.
After having the opportunity to work with Squeaky Wheel Media Center to create a stop-motion animation featuring the Loch Ness Monster, Chace would like to do another animation. Furthermore, he would like to someday teach children all he knows about dinosaurs.
