The fall leaves that catch my attention so vibrantly and dance on the wind remind me of the flurry of activity that's been going on in the studio - so much that I barely have time to catch my breath and reflect! I will attempt to recap, ever so briefly, what I've been up to lately. But only briefly, because the next round of projects and deadlines already loom!
Right after participating in the Beatle's themed show at Cactus Gallery, I was invited to be the featured artist for the gallery's Dollmakers VI show! It was such an honor that I couldn't say no, so that meant I needed to hustle to create something new. Inspired by a Spanish story book I was reading, Diario Secret de Pulgarcito (Secret Diary of Tom Thumb), I created not one but two of my first ever wire armature figures. The author, Philippe Lechemeier, had written the most delightful description of an ominous character who had twice the normal number of teeth, and all of them sharp. This inspired me to sculpt the teeth, and then create the face that would hold them.
