Tallulah and Bernice!


New blog, new blog. I'll start you off with some sweet little hand sculpted dolls I made for a local gallery showing. Tallulah is a tad bit more elegant than her whimsical younger sister Bernice, but the two enjoy their time together. Tallulah is quite the fan of local dances, meeting new friends, and writing. Bernice prefers her time alone, making friends with the butterflies, dancing with elephants, and frolicking often (Oh, and of course her bear hat, which she never leaves home without).



 




These lovely ladies were designed, hand-sculpted, painted, and dressed by myself. These babes are sort of a gateway into the world of puppets. I really hope to play around with some marionette making this year, but for now the obsession is with wooden toys. Recycling (Repainting) one now, so hopefully pictures tomorrow or the day after!

After a long hiatus, it was time to make a brand new blog. The last art blog hasn't been updated since thesis so I'm excited to start fresh!

    1. Thanks!
      These were my play around bits for sculpture/jointed dolls and the start of my possible marionette endeavor. I would sell them with the right offer, but I am so in love with the both of them it would be hard. But YES, haha, they are for sale.

    1. Thanks Dustin! I've really been into sculpting/doll-making. There's a gallery here that showed these dolls which led to them being shown in a second gallery a month or so later. Both galleries want to do a solo show with them too, so that's something I'll be working on this year. I'm excited!
