The doll club that I am a member, "Garden State Doll Artisans" meets once a month in the Public Library in Neptune N.J. We decided that we would pick a children book and make a soft sculpture illustration that the library could put on display in November . I picked Cornella Funke's book "Dragon Rider" , since I enjoy the idea of dragons flying around . So here is my interpretation of the book cover.
Growing up in Iceland with its magical landscapes,the stories and believes of the Huldufolk, the "Hidden Folk" trolls and elves spark my dreams and filters into my work. Also the enjoyment that I have from my garden finds its way into some of my art. After all the work and heartfelt joy that goes in too each project, I am always surprised with what the final handmade pieces looks like,fells like and what it says to me. My work has been featured in the magazine "Art Doll Quarterly" spring 2007,Autumn 2007, and Winter 2008 issues. Was honored to participate in the Wayne Art Center "Art Doll Show" Philadelphia PA.
