Today, the learning curve on creating a new blog post, hit a few snags! But I will perserver and hopefully posting pictures gets easier! The following photos are samples of the kinds of projects that have captured my interest over the last few years.
I love all the color and transparency of smooth fused glass……the more, the better.
Little spirit dolls, driftwood, bits of fabric, and a soulful message.
Over the years I have made so many dolls, I can’t even begin to count them. I’ve enjoyed giving many “Soul Doll Workshops” in the past. I loved watching women discover their own artist within, through this intuitive art form process.
And then some times my creativity dips into paint and collage, and inevitably, the feminine face appears again…..
My love of glass and sparkle returned in the form of what I call, “SPIRIT VESSELS”. I am the kind of artist, that when I am inspired to make something, I don’t come up for air for weeks……or until I have made so many, I run out of space to put them!
A slight obsession with crown making and mannequin head painting took hold, and at times continues to still hold my interest….
More recently, I am engrossed in creating feminine figurative glass sculptures. This type of image making is so satisfying to me right now. I feel that working on larger figures in this particular medium, has expanded not only my artistic confidence, but also my imagination. Imagination is the deepest voice of my soul. It always engages my intuition and opens the doors for an internal dialogue with my truest self.
The most important ingredient in my creative life is when I ask myself the question, “ is what I am creating, meaningful to me” and I am able to answer that, with a loud “Yes!” Let’s inspire and help one another to live fully in our creativity… in whatever area that may be!
