All Dolled Up

From March 10-May 10 I have an exhibit of 49 spirit dolls at The Good News Cafe in Woodbury CT. It's a cool restaurant, a hip little oasis in the midst of a traditional Connecticut town. For the display I did a large central frame of all-white bridal dolls, then marching out on either side all around the room, are dolls in colored outfits. Right now my studio feels sort of bare, but it's good to have a bit more space, as it inspires me to get back to work again!

ADO "Angel" challenge

this doll came together very quickly, as i had a lot of white material, feathers, and pearls on hand in my studio. her face is created from Fimo clay, then attached to a canvas base. she's almost like a mardi gras angel. i photographed the finished doll against fabric i used in 2006 to create my lifesize spirit doll, "Big Mama".
