Hello One and All.  If you are coming to this art blog for the first time let me introduce myself.  My name is Trina and I am an artist of many mediums.  I create art dolls,handmade handbags ,purses,paintings drawings,sculptures,paper bead and fabric bead jewelry, fabric dreadlock beads just to name a few things

Today I want to share with you an art doll that I recently posted on my etsy shop.  For those of you that don't know I have an etsy shop where I sell the creations that I have been posting on this blog.

So this doll was created purely instinctively like almost all of my dolls are unless I am doing a commission piece for an art collector and that person has specific instructions as to how they want their creation to look. Her name is Fearless Darkmoon and she is a Cloth Horror Art Doll.  She is hand sewn and hand painted meticulously.  She is a two-sided doll.  A two- sided doll is a doll that has two fronts and no back.  So you get two dolls for the price of one.

Her eyes on one side are from river rocks I found at the river nearby where I live.  I am always being inspired by Mother Nature within all the art that I create. 

You may wonder why I named this doll Fearless Darkmoon.  Well look at her.  She has no arms, she is bloody and beaten down yet she continues to move on her life's path. I feel it so symbolic of my life and all of the many trials and tribulations I had to endure in order to get to where I am now.

Thank you for stopping by to read my art blog.  Please do check out my youtube channel under the name Darkmoon Doll where I have a show called Art Talk.  I show you how I create these pieces of art and why I believe that art is so very therapeutic and helpful for those who cannot express themselves verbally.
