Yoga Libra Spirit Art Doll

I am so thrilled to be sharing this exciting new piece of work here!
Commissioned for a very special presentation show by Vicki-Sue Brotherhood
(CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO ON HER BLOG). This art doll was created as part of Vicki-Sue's MA exhibition as a personal reflection of the artist herself. She is reflective of many aspects of Vicki's personality. Close friends ( including me!) were asked to suggest a single word to describe Vicki-Sue and each word was used an an inspiration and an embellishment within the piece. I used soft green and gently organic tones to create an earthy and tactile warmth, with a number of fabrics and embellishments found directly from Vicki's personal collection and creations. The open arms and soft twinkle in her blue eyes reflect a lady of great warmth and humour and my aim was to impart both femininity and strength throughout the piece.An absolute joy to create, it was genuinely hard to say goodbye to this doll when completed-but I console myslef that she does now have a VERY good home!
Commissions are very welcome-please contact me using the comment option below if you would like to discuss your ideas.
The MA exhibiton is on 3rd,4th,5th September, Wood Lane, Falmouth Art College.
