Here is a look at some of the new works I have been making this spring. Most all was made with Artfest vending in mind, which was very successful (thank you to all my supporters) but plenty of pieces came home with me. Which I will hopefully get some more stuff up on my etsy shop and I will have a good start on pieces to take with me to theUniversity District Art Fair on
May 15th and 16th in Seattle, Wa.
I really am still very attached to the art doll form. It just has so many options and different techniques used in one creation. I am upcycling or recycling cheesy porcelain and plastic composite dolls I find at thrift stores. I am primarily using paint effects to age and texturize the dolls but I also have recently started using gut (sausage casings) to cover and in case the dolls as well and I am really liking the effect. I learned about gut from a great teacher and friend
