Before I switched my focus to painting,
I used to make art dolls/figures.

That is so AWESOME!! What medium did you use to make your figurines? I found you on FB a few months ago and am a huge fan of your work!!

Hi Michelle,
Thanks for the sweet comment! My figures are individually hand-sculpted of Paperclay over a wire armature. The clothing is hand stitched, often using vintage materials. Each figure takes over a month to complete. I used to do figures exclusively, but have transitioned more into painting lately. Many of my paintings are loosely based on figures that I made in past years :)
