The Ice Queen where it all began.

At the age of 18, Dominique Colell began her ice carving career in the back yard of her parents house while preparing for the talent portion in the 1999 Miss Ventura County contest in the Miss America Organization. During the pageant she took home the crown and became the first and only pageant title holder to have used ice carving as a talent. On the way to Miss California, her musician father and future carving partner Bruce, found the world famous Master Carver Gustave Stempke to train her for the 2 minute talent of ice carving. After winning her title and carving ice in her trademark crown and gown, Dominique was quickly dubbed "The Ice Queen" while featured on "Inside Edition". Along her icy journey Dominique attained her BA in Studio Art from Oklahoma State University in only 3 years, an MAEd in K-8 education, competed in 12 ice sculpture competitions including 9 international world championships, started the southern California based ice carving business Images In Ice, became the first female performing ice sculptress in the world carving for a variety of audiences including opening for "Hooty and the Blowfish", and "Chris LeDoux", performing for Microsoft, Intuit, a 20 day stint of live performances at the World Famous San Diego Zoo and many more. In 2006 Dominique started the all female ice carving group called "The Chainsaw Chicks" that has performed nationally, most recently at the Ronald Reagan Library. In 2009 and 2010 Dominique was one of the featured ice sculptors on the TLC shows "Chainsaw Ice Sculptors" and "Chainsaw Ice Sculptors: Challenge Alaska".
