‘Creativity Board’ showcases the process for making a free form doll.
‘Clarity’ is a small doll made to fit in the palm of your hand. She is a commission piece that grew out of the request to include glass in the artwork.
PERSONAL JOURNEY DOLL Workshop Description
Designed as a gentle and intuitive way to free up your imagination, the Personal Journey Doll Workshop brings play and spontaneity back into the creative process.Techniques taught are a combination of fibre arts, soft sculpture, and mixed media and include wrapping, knotting, sewing, weaving, and/or gluing the dolls together. Please bring a small memento (button, shell, stone, wood, word…) as a starting point for your doll. Sewing skills are not required, supplies are included, and anyone 16 and over is welcome to attend.
Artifacts of an Active Imagination Artist Statement
“Each art doll I create is an expression of a feeling, idea, or memory rather than a realistic facsimile of a human. These organic, enigmatic figures are formed intuitively; the elusive made real. My intent is to fuse my creative imagination with my skills as an artist to enchant both the child and adult facets of myself and others.”
