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.
I am busy working on a commissioned art doll for Jo from Jo Letchford Mosaics, the Old High Street, Folkestone ( wonderful mosaics…go see! www.joletchfordmosaics.co.uk )– for her daughter Jen, and two new art dolls
they are now finished…so keep moving down the page to see them … All three are now SOLD
here they are from almost the beginning after I had made the faces etc…coming to life…
she is finished…and as I went on, she told me her story which I will write down, but as I worked, and she came more and more to life, she was very vocal about what her clothes needed to look like… for example I wondered why she insisted on the little cross/ dagger hanging against her chest, which had to be visible and the leather high collar that encased her neck, and the leather armor around vulnerable pulse points…then i realised…she is a vampire hunter… and her needs became clear…
an assortment of stakes for her crossbow..silver, wooden, wood with silver ….
And … the boy…
Mr. Messori, Felix to his friends!
I made the fabric for his jacket and topper from cotton, feathers, leather, various pieces of chain and links, ribbon, suede and lots and lots of stitching!
Finially! Keep checking in and I will add their stories- I am cluching a biro and scribbling as I type this!
