Cheese Lady Sarah Kaufmann

I began freelance cheese sculpting in 1996 after leaving the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board (WMMB). My first commissioned piece was for WMMB – a 40- pound block, split in two, and stacked vertically. It was 25″ tall by 14″ wide and done for a National Senate Legislators conference in Milwaukee. After that, I completed a carving titled “The Cheesemakers of Monroe, WI salute to the Cheesemakers of Monroe, NY.” From there, I moved on quickly to 3-D sculptures and did a carving of a 640-pound Green Bay Packer for Sargento, to commemorate the 1996 Super Bowl. I’ve also carved a 120-pound, 36″ tall Mickey Mouse for Disney World and a 300-pound gorilla for the National Juvenile Diabetes Association Gala, and many more! (via artist’s website)
