a commissioned project for a "traditional" rabbit

a commissioned project for a “traditional” rabbit

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times”. As one of my client’s says: Life showed up. For those of you who supported me this year, mentally, spiritually, creatively and financially… I can’t begin to describe how much it meant. I felt really alone at times, but my friendships (and my pets) kept me going when things were bleakest. Its been pretty much a year of survival which has meant not a lot of creative output. I did get a commission to make a “traditional” bunny rabbit. It was fun and hopefully will be well-loved.

New online dollmaking class!

Pamela Hastings - Tears of the Cities

Pamela Hastings - Tears of the Cities

The last online class taught by Pamela Hastings was amazing (Dollmaking as a Transformative Process). I got so much from Pamela and the interactions with the other artists. Way more than I originally thought I would. It was a small, intense group and I find ideas from that class still inspiring my creative process.

This next class, Three-Dimensional Doll Design, goes more into the nuts and bolts (um, needles and threads… scissors and ?) of turning 2D ideas into 3D reality which is where I really (!) need help. I am so dyslexic when I sew. It is usually upside-down, inside-out and backwards from what I thought I was doing.
