The Virgin Post

OK - so here goes.  For those of you who don't know me (which I would imagine is most of you)  I have attached a few images of my latest work.  I have always been drawn to the human form and that is what most informs my work.  Now, my take on what constitutes the human figure can be a bit broad, but that is just part of the wonderfulness of me!

Her cute little butt!

Sweet face made from a door lock...

What is on her mind (ha!)

Seriously, though, all I have ever been interested in doing is representing the human form, generally female although not exclusively, and using every kind of mixed media technique there is in the process.   I bead, embroider, felt, collage, sculpt, stitch, paint, glue and embellish (to ridiculous levels!).  As soon as I see some cool new technique I start thinking of ways to incorporate it into my work.

Some people get it, some don't.  I have gotten every comment there is from references to voodoo dolls to tears (of joy).  It is not always easy to hear, but I am working on remembering that everyone's opinion has some merit, even if it hurts.

I guess that is all part of the process.
