One of my favorite things about being an artist is that you never stop learning. There are always new techniques to learn, materials to try and creative boundaries to push. This week, I really pushed myself and attempted to sculpt something I’ve never done before – a person! Meet Serena, my witch!
Serena is entirely sculpted from polymer clay. She is created on a wire armature, so she is somewhat posable. Her hair is made from natural Border Leicester locks, and her outfit is a fiber art bundle for the skirt (she has gray bloomers and polymer clay boots underneath), and her top is a wrap made of black cheesecloth. She also has silver hoop earrings and a moon pendant necklace. Even her broom is handmade!
Considering she is my first attempt at this type of project, I’m beyond thrilled with how she turned out! I hope you like her!
Although I primarily create miniature food, I’ve recently decided to challenge myself to go outside my comfort zone and work in different materials to create pieces that are a little different! Thus, the Curiosities collection was born. This collection will include all my unique, one-of-a-kind works that don’t fall under the categories of food or home decor. I’m having a lot of fun with these, and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
I am beyond thrilled and honored to be featured in the July 2017 issue of American Miniaturist magazine! I’ve been a subscriber for about a year now, and I absolutely adore it, so you can imagine my excitement at seeing my work featured in its glossy pages!
Don’t miss my 4th of July minis and all the other beautiful creations in this issue!
