Maureen Darkmoon two-sided doll

Maureen Darkmoon is a doll that I have been working on for about a year. She has gone through many phases but has decided she wants to be an elaborately dressed pirate. So I will do my best to bring out her full pirate potential.
Stay tuned for more!!!

Devila Darkmoon Two-sided doll

So this is Devila Darkmoon. She is a two-sided doll. I used acrylic paints, recycled fabrics, avocado pit for the red skull. I painted snakes on the body on one side and flowers on the other.
I am thinking about giving her a mermaid tail and horns. The dolls speak to me and tell me how they want to be . I have been creating this doll for about 2yrs now and I sometimes get impatient and want to be done but the doll will only know when he or she is complete. Every detail comes together eventually so after 9yrs of creating dolls I have learned to surrender to the process and not be in such a hurry to let the creation go. I thought that I was crazy for starting so many dolls and not bringing all of them to their completion as most doll makers do. But I am learning to let go of the outcome. I can have an idea as to what I think a creation should look like and the doll's spirit will tell me just the opposite. Creating this particular doll really convinced me that I am not in control. She has been through many transitions and I know that it has a lot to do with the transitions I have gone through personally.
I hope that you enjoy this creation and it inspires you to create art.

Goth Fairy

This a doll that I am having loads of fun creating. I had to put her down because she is not telling what else she needs to complete her. I know that it may sound crazy to some but the dolls do let me know when they are complete and when they need more work.

I hope that you enjoy her. She is telling me today that she needs a magick wand with a star at the end and possibly more hair.

Stay tuned and we will see what magick happens with this one.

Catabcomb and a Dark Mermaid

So here are some photographs of a two-sided doll I have been working which I named Marina Darkmoon and a painting of two demons in a catacomb that I am still painting. The problem with working 0n many projects at once is that I tend to run out of paint which is what happened and I have to patiently wait until my next trip to the craft store in order to finish my projects. Oh well!!

Hope you all enjoy them!!!

Love to you and your,

Addicted to doll making

I make what I call bottle dolls. I use old soda or beer bottles, acrylic paints,synthetic hair and avocado pits for the heads. I am addicted to making these as well as the cloth dolls that I make using recycled fabrics, paint, glue,sometimes clay. My mind never stops. Sometimes I start to think I can get all of these projects completed in a year but I know better than to rush the process. If I do not know what to do with a doll or whatever art project I happen to working on I hang it up or put out where I can see it all and the one that is ready to worked on will call out to me.
