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! ;>)
