For this year’s 2020 drawlloween I also created a new type of curious creatures…which are needle felted or needlefelted with polymer clay heads. Because I had so much fun making them, I will be continuing with these new sorts of creatures in the future! Here are the ones I made for drawlloween (all are now sold)
Cat Lore and other Superstitions exhibition
I am so excited to be exhibiting two pieces in the Cat Lore and other Superstitions exhibition at the fabulous Inverarity gallery. The first one is a framed graphite drawing, and the second one is a 3d sculpt of the drawing on a wooden plaque, which has a hook on the back to hang it from a wall.
Sneeky peeks at my piece for the Cactus Gallery this September 2020
A few sneaky peeks at the art doll I’ve been busy working away on for the awesome cactus gallery ‘s Doll makers’ ‘Folktales ‘ show in September
I’m sooo excited to be a part of this!
Can you guess who she is from her accessories.. The skull staff, house on chicken legs, headdress and little doll companion?

R is for Reaper
I am so excited to be exhibiting in the end of year Bad Apple exhibition ‘A is for Apple’ at the AMAZING Inverarity Gallery this November….I was given the letter R🙌👻🖤 and decided to make my La Morte drawing come to life (with an art doll and horse) – because R is for Reaper, of course!
R is for Reaper…
Ooak art doll.
She is a mix of air dry and polymer clay over a wire frame, with a needle felt over wire torso. Her outfit is a mix of new and recycled fabrics, with crochet chainmail and armour created from a mix of jewelry findings.
Her crown is metal decorated with a polymer clay skull, and has a black and gold veil attached to the back.
Her unicorn horse is also a mix of air dry and polymer clay over a wire frame, with a clay saddle decorated with metal jewelry findings.
Her scythe is a mix of wood, clay , fabric and resin. The base is wooden, and decorated with air dry and polymer clay skulls and flowers. To the top of her scythe she’s approximately 60cm tall.
My latest art doll is now exhibiting and available to buy at the fabulous Inverarity Gallery, in ‘nine lives- the return of the cat’!
The little witch is made from clay over a wire and fabric frame, and is handpainted. She is wearing little faux leather boots and stripey stockings under vintage cotton bloomers. Her grey dress has embroidered and lace details. Her hat is made from cotton, trimmed with lace and has a hand made little crow skull attached to it. She wears a tiny planchette with an all-seeing eye around her neck and is holding another planchette in her hand, and in the centre of her forehead is a light catching shiny silver star. Her two ‘familiars’ are needle felted over wire frames and are both wearing little bells on ribbons and bows around their necks. The black and grey cat has a half moon on his forehead. They are seated in a glass dome, on a wooden base- handpainted Ouija board. The dome can be removed and the doll can be taken off the base, but she is fixed in a kneeling position. Beware , one of the cats is a bit grumpy!
🖤🐈🖤A little WIP peek at a witchy girl and her two kitties I have been busy working away on for a fabulous cat inspired exhibition= ‘Nine Lives’, which begins next month at the Inverarity Gallery 🖤🐈🖤

Vincent and Vanessa Vespertilio
My two latest Children of the Piper dolls are now finished = the vampire siblings Vincent and Vanessa.
”Time really begins to drag when you’re undead; especially if you’re a child.
And making new friends is practically impossible.
Any potential candidates are usually getting tucked up into bed when you’re being dragged out of yours. Sleepovers could be a solution, but apparently no one wants to risk a sleepover at a vampire’s house. No matter how friendly Vanessa tried to make her face, or how many invitations she sent out with little hand drawn promises not to bite guests, no one ever seemed willing to accept. She’d long since given up trying. Who needed friends anyway, they just turned into adults.”
to read more of their stories and to see more pictures = /https://samcrowsculptures.wordpress.com/2016/08/11/vincent-and-vanessa-vespertilio/
I will be popping them for sale in my etsy shop on Sunday 14th August at 4p.m gmt.=
