Margaret Sweet and Dolly Boo!

Here are the final pictures of my Halloween artdoll  Margaret Sweet and her little Dolly Boo.
Margaret and Boo are now safe and sound at Bear and Bird Gallery awaiting their show dates.
So I think its okay to show her pictures now.
Margaret is one of my Creepy Cuties  and is a OOAK (0ne of a kind) original artdoll hand sculpted by me, Rosanna Pereyra, with no molds ever used or taken of her. 
She is approximately 6 inches tall and her little Dolly Boo is about 1 and 1/2 inches tall. They are both sculpted from polymer clay and both have hand painted glass eyes. 
Margaret's hair is made of mohair that I have dyed orange. All of my dolls are dressed in a mix of new, vintage and antique fabrics(in this case a hanky and a leather opera glove) from the early 1900's. Her shoes are leather. Her Candy Apple is sculpted and has tiny "razor blades" inside.
She comes with a wooden coffin that I have distressed and painted to look old with a sculpted skelly face and some paper roses. 

She can be purchased at Bear and Bird Gallery during the show dates or through me after the show ends. 
Thank You-

My Halloween Creepy Cutie "Poor Little Margaret"

Here are the WIP's I mentioned yesterday of my sad little clown Margaret
She is a Creepy Cutie which is a nice or mild way of saying she has passed on. My Creepy Cuties have a more exaggerated style which gives me an opportunity to express a less serious side of my art(very liberating). This was one of the inspiration photos behind the little clown doll and of course the name of the art show was the driving force for the whole idea.

I will post some more WIP pics of Poor Little Margaret tomorrow and this weekend I will post the finished doll. Come back soon!!

A gift from Castle in the Air

Hi everyone! 
I have been busy finishing my Creepy Cutie Halloween piece for the 
Candy Apples & Razor Blades show at Bear and Bird Gallery.  I will put up the progress photos this week for those of you that like to see that and the finished photo this weekend. 

I wanted to take a moment to say a big THANK YOU to Karima Cammell over at 
Castle in the Air for  sending me this beautiful badge!!
We have been chatting ever since we met through the OWOH event. Her wonderful shop sells all kinds of amazing things and they have classes taught by such creative greats as Ulla Milbrath
Karima has been practicing her doll making and is fast improving. I am sure one of these days we will come up with something so we can teach a class together.
Thank You again Karima!!
