Damien - Assemblage Art Doll

I made several wire skirts for dolls last year and I got burned out making them, so they sat on the shelf waiting for new life. I was stumped on what to use for the trunk of the doll. It takes me a little while before the light goes on and an idea pops into my head. I'm not sure if it has to do with age or having children. Maybe both! Anyway, I have moved beyond that block by creating Damien and few others I will post later. I'm trying to get a small body of work together for a show/sale in Milwaukee for the month of December.

I ran out black pepper last week and was left with this wonderful canister, so I created Mickey.

Just finished up back to back birthday parties for my kids and I'm done until next year! My kids are two years apart, but their birthdays are 9 days apart, so the month of Oct. is very busy for me. Physically it seems that my ability to bounce back from highly energized situations takes a lot longer than it use to. Thank God my husband is right in the mix helping me out to the very end! I am very blessed to have such a wonderful partner!

Lady Liberty

Lady Liberty has the words from the Star-Bangled Banner stamped on her.
The wood used in this piece makes it heavy and large in size. It measures about 15"x4".

Angel of Charity

New wings for my angels! Much larger and more detailed than the other wings.

More Domino Baby's

I have some ideas swirling around in my brain in which direction to take these. They could evolve a bit more, but we'll have to wait and see.
