I am teaching an Altered Art Doll Mania Class at Artful Gathering 2016 and these two dolls as well as a doll kit will be randomly given away at the end of the session to students enrolled for my class.
I started making these block angels several years ago and I think it's time to create more.
The wings and face are created with polymer clay.
This is a wire doll I created back in 2009. The upper torso and head were made from polymer clay and the arms are coiled wire. I love working with wire and my biggest inspiration that drew me to this medium is Mixed Media Jewelry Artist Richard Salley. His wire work in jewelry is totally amazing!!
Before I was fully engaged into the art I create now, I use to work in leather quite a bit. I incorporated stamping, wire, markers, and beading in creating these dolls. I was exploring Native American Images and symbols and some of my work today still has that similar feel.

I will be teaching a mixed media art doll class at Artful Gathering 2016 this coming summer. It's still in the works with taping my class and it has been such a huge leap for me regarding learning something new. The group of artists I will be joining at Artful Gathering are phenominal artists and I am honored to be a part of it!! I will keep you posted as the weeks progress.
This is a protoype of an angel I've been working on for a few years. It's been sitting on the back burner until I get the inspiration to work with it more. Loving the folk style of this piece!
