Queene of Hearts and update!

Its almost time for some new folk art and I haven't even had a chance to post a pic of my last doll,
Queene of Hearts!
She is sold but I thought you might enjoy some pictures:

Still for sale are my collage hearts. These are great little bowl fillers all year round and they each feature a loving little word. I love filling my home with things that make me smile at a glance, don't you?

For sale at PFATT Marketplace until March 10.

I have been SO remiss in updating my blog. I will try to do better.
Mostly I have been painting like a crazy woman! I am absolutely obsessed with mixed media painting-mostly girls. I have always loved doing faces, I'm sure that is a big part of what attracted me to dollmaking so many years ago. I find that painting has informed my dollmaking in a very  satisfying way. My doll faces are becoming more vibrant, which I am loving.
 With painting, I also am able to explore color in a really exciting way. As the years went on I found I was unable to limit myself to the primitive palette. 
Don't get me wrong,
 I have always loved primitives,and still do.
 But as an artist I eventually found them limiting.
What is man but a being who must change and grow, right?

If you would like to see my paintings and whats going on in my studio follow me on Instagram. I post almost every day!

Hugs to you and stay warm, spring is right around the corner!!

Fairy Queene of Hearts

Hey guys!
Happy 2015!!

Just wanted to pop in and let you know I've got a new doll for sale coming up on the 

This is my Fairy Queene of Hearts!
She is a perfect mash up of my two current obsessions-mixed media paintings and cloth dolls!

I have been painting and art journaling a lot lately. But I still really enjoy working on dolls. 
I just love doing faces, either on dolls or in a journal. 
Here are some of my painted faces:

They are so much fun to do!
                    These are from my art journal, but I hope to do some as paintings for sale soon.
Here's another one:
This is a painting I made for one of my kids for Christmas. 
It is layers of collage and paint on watercolor paper. 
See the circuit board in the background?
 When I found that I knew it was perfect because my son (who I painted this for) 
is a computer engineer. 
This painting is about creatures and their longing for their maker. 
My son loved it!
Hope to see you on PFATT On the 10th!

Primitive Santa with Star

This guy is available this month on PFATT Marketplace!

I had so much fun making him! Santas are not historically my thing. I usually go for the dolls with the girly dresses; where I can add lots of vintage lace, pintucks and embroidered embellishments!
 But this guy was in there just wanting to come out! LOL!
He comes with a prim candy cane, and holds a star cookie! Lots of rusty tin jingle bells adorn his coat!
His beard is made of raw sheep's wool and has been needle felted.

Primitive Hanging Santa is available on PFATT Marketplace this month.

Happy Holidays!
