Celebrity and Empowerment Marionettes

Genii Townsend, author of The City of Light Sedona, is a professional marionette artist and she has created over 5,000 marionettes during her career. For 18 years, she owned and operated Geniiland near Hollywood which was a favorite place for celebrities to take their children for a very magical birthday party.

Genii has made hundreds of marionettes of "celebrities" including those shown below. To see how much work is involved in creating a marionette that make them worth thousands of dollars, Click Here for photos of Genii creating the marionettes of Ellen Degeneres. Genii donated one of them to help raise funds for the Sedona Art and Film Festivals and she gave the other one to Ellen for her birthday and got to enjoy watching Ellen dancing with herself on the Ellen Show, Imagine That!

Several of the celebrity marionettes have been donated by Genii as fundraisers for non-profit organizations such as the Sedona Arts Council and the Sedona Film Festival. Genii has also accepted commissions to create marionettes of other individuals whose family or associates want to honor in such a unique and innovative manner.


Genii is now working through The Light Center with Ultimate Destiny University to create Empowerment Marionettes™ of authors and trainers who have received the Ultimate Destiny Hall of Fame Award (such as Les Brown, Mark Victor Hansen, Deepak Chopra, etc.) whose inspiring and motivation messages will be shared with children.
