These are 3 of the Holiday dolls that I have finished. Cloth heads, arms and bodies attached to old wooden beehive bobbins. They have been hand painted, their clothes are hand sewn and stand 23-24 inches tall. I am done with these cloth dolls and off to sculpting now.

Susiedesigns Artist’s Statement I am a whimsical artist. I want a tale in my art. As I develop a piece, the story unfolds into textures, changes in dimensions and a collage of items used. I save all sorts of items that combined, become an art piece to imagine the story. When I make a doll I might start out with colors in mind but then the adventure takes twists and turns. Added items come and go, purchased or from the “stash”. The doll can never be drawn out and planned. She and I take a path and sometimes come to forks in the road and struggle together as to which one to take. The outcome is always such a surprise.
