Art Doll - Original

Well, I finally finished one of the original art dolls I started over a year ago. It was trial and error and quite the learning experience.
I did learn that I liked creating my dolls on a smaller scale!!! I was pleased with the way my prints worked with the figure. The hair is done in leather.

Bobbin Paper dolls

These paper dolls were very much inspired by the very talented Judith Thibaut
She created her fabulous dancing Madonnas and I had been searching for a way to create a paper doll using some of my old prints that would look nice. So Judith posted some wonderful dolls and I was inspired.
The dolls are made from old collagraph, mono and etching prints, and fabric. The fabric is sandwiched between two pieces of printed paper and then machine stitched. They are embellished with beads, hardware, leather, wire, feathers, tulle, and silk fabric.

Art Doll "Nailed"

This doll was titled "Nailed" because of the fact that she has a big rusty nail piercing her body that represents her arms.

Doll Assemblage

Just finished this piece yesterday. This assemblage piece is made up of rusty spike nails, old fuse boxes and fuses, various types of hardware. The face is done with polymer clay. It hangs on a wall by a wire loop on the back.
