Sorry I've been away for the last 2 weeks, life I've been somehow really busy and I failed to publish my weekly inspiration.
Since I've been using most of my none "day job" time working on doll I will like to present you the work of a doll artist I admire a lot. Her doll have such personalities the really that telling a story factor I always come back to. They are intricate characters from the whimsical and fantasy worlds. I found her head piece to always be a fascinating part of the character. Once again I wish there was a book that will come with each of them to tell me their story although it is part of the fun to imagine their life. You can find more about Alexandra's dolls and other creation on her official website or you can find her on Facebook. Her work have been publish in many magazine and traveled the world.
I found Amber on Facebook just a few months ago and I immediately felt in love with her quirky, fun and wonderful head sculptures. I can imagine them coming to life at night and have wonderful adventure. I have a fascination for sculpture as I found it so hard to create them. Amber ladies have personality and make you wish to be part of her whimsical, carnavalesque universe. You can buy her art on Etsy. By the way Amber told me her shop will be refill today by 5PM EST with Kokeshi, ornaments and wall heads! She also have her work on display at Mariposa Gallery in Albuquerque and Jezebel in Ft. Lauderdale
Remember last week when I was telling you how much I love I admire the ability of an artist to tell story through is painting? Well, this week I present you Kelly Vivanco. I first came across Kelly’s art when I purchase a collectable set of postcard from the Prisma Artist Collective and I fell I love with it instantly. When I look at her painting I wish there was a book that come each of them, I want to learn more about the adventures her character are on. I had a hard time picking which painting to share with you as I love them all. You can see more of her work here or purchase some cool print, jewelry and more here . It’s your turn to be inspire by her wonderful and colourful work and maybe write your own version of the story… See you next week!
Kelly told me she will have some limited edition prints on wood next month at Distinction Gallery’s ‘prints on wood’ show and a few new original pieces at Archimedes Gallery next month as well. Is you are in the area go have I look I sure wish I could!
