I didn't set out to make a Chakra figure . She has been waiting patiently for me to understand what she wanted. Sometimes it takes me years to hear what the dolls tell me. Don't worry family I don't hear voices , but somehow the figures have a way of becoming what they want to be and not what I set out to make. She was a exercise in how to make a small human figure. One day we were doing some beading in our doll club and it all fell into place. I don't know much about Chakras but I made sure that I used the correct colored beads in the correct center of the body. Beside the bead work I have done embroidery with metallic thread .
Chakra means Wheel in Sanskrit.
Consciousness and energy move from one frequency to another in spiraling fashion
Just a few pictures to remember summer by. Peach picking was a fun day , I didn't know that our grandchildren didn't like peaches...More for us :) The watercolor in the back grown was painted by my Mother, Laura Stanick.
The Clear Water Festival in Asbury Park was a nice day out with the family.
The look on Kayla's face when she came across the poor stuffed wolf...
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.
