Born to be Wild

Here's a new double figure called Born to be Wild. Sometimes my work can lean to a slightly darker vein. This one is just silly sweet. While I think I am sort of wild I am so not. I am totally Boring. These guys sort of play on that. I guess wildness is sort of like beauty:  in the eye of the beholder.
 And I have fond memories of being a child and ogling Beatrix Potter's Peter Rabbit illustrations. So I drew my own Peter Rabbit type character.

The head on the right is so like a couple of my nephews. Funny how that happens. Hope you enjoy them.

New Saatchi Art Shop

Recently I started a shop on the Saatchi online gallery. Take a visit.
There's a lot of talented people over there. We'll see where it takes me, and my dolls.

Two Fresh Sculptures on my Etsy Shop

Two new babies. All clay hair, featuring my drawing and painting.
This first one is titled

I am the Captain of my Soul
and this one is Halfway There

Back to my studio to make more. These kids have hair made from clay for those of you who miss the old babies.

Monday Oh Monday...

Last night I was tidying my studio table and thought it looks pretty so I grabbed my camera and snapped pics.
 My new table and happy roses. Looks like my model skeleton (Mr. Bones) is talking to my newest doll.
 A cup of coffee after dinner and a Trapp Candle for lovely smells.

Got into work this morning and looked the photos I took. The top image is my new desktop image on my work computer. There was something nice about being in my office and being so connected to my studio. Made me purr inside.

Life is Short So Be Happy

I can't believe I never posted a pic of my new big girl. Her name is Life is Short. (every time I say to myself... life is short, and so am I). But as cheesy as it sounds it's true. Whatever it is, just do it. Don't wait, be happy. This figure is about 30 inches tall, freestanding. Hand painted leather wings.

Different Doll

Totally different for me but so much fun to make. I do love painting and you know how I love my girls. Vibrant happy colors. Thought we deserve to be happy on a Monday.
