"Posessed By The Leviathan"

This is a new mixed media painting I created that I have on sale on my etsy store. I was inspired by a recent episode of Supernatural having to do with the Leviathan possesing Castiel the Angel.
I used colored pencil,watercolors and pen on printer paper that was tea and coffee stained.

Art Dolls And Creative Fatigue

I have been very exhausted lately and quite overwhelmed by the amount of things I have accumulated through the years and I have come to realize that all of the clutter definitely describes what is going on in my mind. So to dissolve this cluttery feeling one by one I have been ridding my art supply of excess garbage.
Projects that could soon be something grand by right now it just a bunch of recyclables and that is what I have made these things into in my mind. Something grandiose but that must wait. I am taking one project at time and clearing things away.
I can't keep everything!
I am still as creative as ever. But I have just been wanting to draw a lot to ease my mind.
Here's a few I have been working on and also a photo of one of the dolls I recently completely and listed on etsy. http//

Art Dolls,Cloth Art Dolls, And Handmade Paperclay

I recently made some paperclay using glue,newspaper,dishsoap,bleached flour and a bit of water. It made so much paperclay and I made a bunch of cool art dolls with it. It took these creations two and half weeks to dry. I think the next time I will spread the clay on fabric or polymer clay. One so it will last longer and secondly so that it will dry a lot faster.
I also decided to share some photos of the cloth dolls I have been working. Been wanting to add more embellishments to the dolls and possibly so props for the dolls.

Art Doll Mace Darkmoon

I just finished a new doll. This one came together within 2 days. That is quite incredible for me because it usually takes me months and sometimes years working on one doll. This one is a bit more simplistic than most of my dolls. And it is not freakishly huge like a lot of my dolls can get.
It's kind cool how it all came together quite magickally. I had extra handmade polymer clay beads on hand to make her bone nose and teeth. I knew that would come in handy. I have made so many different beads but have not sold as many as I expected so now I will just use the extras for adorning my dolls.
I like the simplicity of this one and will be doing more like Mace in the future.
Please do go check her out in my etsy store.
Thank you all hope you are creating something today!

Cloth Art Doll Mystickal Darkmoon

I just listed one of my newest creations "Mystickal Darkmoon".
I have been wanting to get a working sewing machine but through this longing for creating a piece much faster I have found patience and tranquilty sewing by hand. I think that a lot of my own energy is being put into the dolls I make by hand because the connection of the fabric in hands.
I used recycled fabrics,yarn and acrylic paints.
The story of the doll doesn't occur to me until I have completed her or him and I like it that way. But on the other hand I have been making some sketches that will be interesting to bring to life as a doll.
I am even thinking about writing little books to go with each one. My son is really good with origami and made me an origami book I could use for one of my dolls and I think that they can even turn into a comic as well.
Please stayed tuned on that project. In the meantime here is a photo of Mystickal Darkmoon her two-sides.
I hope that everyone has a creative day today!!!

Scary Art Doll For The Summer

Truth is I can celebrate Halloween 365 because it is just the one holiday that means anything to me! I think I have Halloween using out of my pores! I remember one thing my most favorite art teacher Mr. Stan Stoneking told me that made me not afraid to express the dark side of myself was to just let go. Letting go of others expectations of what my art should be and how I am allowed to express my creativity.

Here the latest two scary ladies I have listed on my etsy shop. Each one has a bit me within them. They were both handsewn and I used some of my handcrafted charms on Pinky Darkmoon. Can you guess which one is Pinky?

Gothicka Darkmoon is a tall woman. When I first started creating her I thought that she was going to be a man. She began to look a bit like a gothic version of the nutcracker. As I continued to work on her day by day she began to look more and more like a androgynous creature of the night .

I hope you enjoy viewing my latest creations and please do stop by my etsy shop because I don't get enough time in the day to list every new thing I put in my shop.

Art Doll And SpringGoddess Purse on Etsy

Hello all,

It's been quite a while. I have had some trying times yet I continue to create through it all because I think that creating art is the best medicine for me. I seem to be creating schizophrenically. But surprisingly I end up finishing some projects that I would think would take ions to complete.

What I have learned is that it is better to just go with the flow of creation and listen to my creations message of wisdom and not worry about finishing every single project. Most projects I have found to be therapeutic and to have an endless amount of steps to them. I am learning to be more patient with them and not be so quick to get them over with when I am faced with something that seems impossible to complete.

My husband had these beautiful dresses that were given to him from a friend to sell on ebay about 4yrs ago. I kept asking him if I could use them for fabric since they are not worth any money. He finally gave into my begging and said yes. I created this awesome springtime flower goddess purse from it. I am so incredibly happy with how it turned out! It is listed on my etsy right now.

There is a dark dollie I just listed today that I have been working on for over 3yrs. She kept speaking to me but I wasn't listening. I finally listened to her and gave her the simplicity that she wanted. She only required a few adornments. I attached one of my charms which a sculpted from polymer clay. Which is a evil eye. The other embellishment is a amethyst-like charm. I forgot to mention that she is a two-sided doll.

I hope you enjoy viewing these creations and that they inspire you to create something from the heart!

Art Dolls With Feeling

Here is what I have been up to lately. I finished quite a bit of dolls lately and drawing and a goddess painting as well. I have really been enjoying exploring the world of papier mache dolls. Which are so tactile. I love the stickiness of the paste and the process of applying it onto the base,which is always a recyclable container so it makes me feel really good about contributing a piece of art made that will be biodegradable for the most part.

I opened up another store at ecrater. I have a few dollies there too. A dear friend mentioned it to me so I thought I would give it a whirl. The bunny couple sitting on the couch and the two-side doll with the bright yellow face and stitchy like mouth are on there. Please do take a look and tell me what you think.

I feel so good when a doll is completed. It feels as though they are alive and can communicate to the world.

I was once asked if I would be interested in mass producing my dolls and the answer is no.

Each doll is an original with their own personality and style. They have their own spirit and way of communicating. I just feel that it would be a disservice to the original!

Okay all please do enjoy and feel free to check out my etsy store as well.

Thank you for stopping by! ;>)

ArtDollsZombies andSuch

Almost done with making some of my new dolls. The dolls have been wanting to have accessories so I have been creating little purses and jewelry for them. They seem happier for it. Each of them are two side dolls. Two-sided meaning that they have a whole other side or personality to them.

Just have the dolls to show and not the accessories yet but I have been having a ball.

Next I'll be making some shoes. Please do stay tuned and if you want to see some more of dollies you can go check out my etsy store too! .
