WOW, I can't believe its almost Thanksgiving! I still have so much work to do. Here is a sneak peak at the Virgin Mary's idea board, and some other things I made like the victorian lady head and Yes, I make stuffed animals too.
As soon as I finish Mary I will be working on a creepy OLD cutie and some kids that I would like to use to try to join a group that does some wonderful work, MRSBO's. Wish me luck!
BIG NEWS FOR ME!

I'm still working on my commission-
Its going to be my interpretation of the crying Virgin Mary (La Virgencita) with some red roses. The daughter requested it for her mom as a gift. I loved looking up images of Mary. She has been depicted by so many artists throughout history, at so many different ages and in so many different styles. I have done angels in the past but this is going to be my first religious Icon. I am already having fun gathering the materials. I will post some pics this weekend.
P.S. For all of you Tim Burton fans out there, this is the new Alice in Wonderland. I can't wait to see her and Johnny Depp in this remake.

I figured since I show my sculptures here, I should also show my other work as well. I do some paintings from time to time and these are some of the sketches in my journal. When I finally sketch one I love then I paint it. The bottom one is currently being made into a painting, I loved her pose and expression. I am thinking of putting some of my work on ETSY, let me know what you all think.
Hi Everyone, Happy November!
Here are some pics of my almost completed little "Pirate Girl"
Like all of my girls, she's caught in that amazing age just before you lose your innocence and where magic and make believe are still possible.
All of the fabrics, new and vintage, have been aged and distressed except for the lace fingerless gloves, that lace is almost 100 years old and VERY delicate so I left it alone.
She wears a white dress and matching pantaloons and wears a blue tulle and wool shawl
that wraps around her shoulders.
Her hair is tibetan lamb and was hand dyed by me. She is made of a blend of polymer clays and a sturdy wire armature and then is lightly blushed all over even her fingertips. She has freckles and hand painted dark glass eyes.
SORRY...she was delivered before the final picture
I added a few more details on her hat, some feathers and fabric
I LOVE HATS
I hope you enjoy!
