This week I’ve been working on a new doll design, The first four dolls have been completed and are available in my shop. They have linen bodies in a variety of skin colours, their hair is wool and their clothes are a mixture of new and genuine vintage fabrics. Each face is individually hand painted. I wanted to create a doll that was a follow on from previous doll designs and that also related to the characters in my paintings. Colour and pattern therefor feature strongly. I have designed a single shape that I can develop in a variety of skin and hair colours to create as much diversity as possible within the one design.
Having taken a year out I am slowly reconnecting with various mediums, over the last week I have been experimenting with paper clay.
