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.
I have added some more brooches, small prints and blank greetings cards to the shop – and will continue adding more…before I disappear again for a while to do more illustrations/ scribblings and Curious Creature making x
Because I am so busy working on the new Curious Creatures and illustrations, and haven’t had the chance to post very often, I have made some brooches in the quieter moments to pop in my etsy shop as a way to say ”HELLO!!” to you all, and ”I am still working away!”
Over the next few weeks whilst I am making the new little people and scribbling away, I will continue to add some more Curious Creatures brooches, some Inky Fingers ones too, and, if i get a chance -(these little creatures can be quite mischevious or demanding)- some cards and mini prints…xxx
My work table is coming alive … they’re all chatting at once – demanding paint, hair , bodies… hopefully they’ll fall asleep soon xxx
(armatures made – awaiting fleshing out, which begins tommorrow – as does the painting- stay tuned xxx)
This little fellow was found scampering around the presents under my christmas tree … I managed to capture him with the aid of some peanut butter on toast and sent him off to France and his new home ….
Elliot = little Ellie in his christmas crown, the first of my new collection of Children of the Piper art dolls … now living in France …
