Artist Statement:

Amber and Friend is from my latest series of art dolls or Textile Sculptures, which have evolved over the past four years. They are not children’s toys and are made for display purposes only. They are both entirely handmade and each is attached to a purpose-built stand. They are hand-stitched with the use of recycled fabrics giving new life to old treasures. Amber’s torso and hands are made from air dried clay and painted. The theme ‘Nurture’ is evident as she is displayed with her friend.

Madonna and child is from my latest series of art dolls or Textile Sculptures, which have evolved over the past four years. They are not children’s toys and are made for display purposes only. Madonna is entirely handmade and seated on a purpose-built stand. She can also be hung on the wall and given the opportunity to be displayed in varying positions and places. The theme ‘Nurture’ is evident as she is displayed with her baby and is entirely hand-stitched with the use of recycled fabrics giving new life to old treasures. The personality of both her and her baby is conveyed by their drawn faces, untethered hair style and the use of imperfections –visible stiches, vintage textiles, and treasures collected from op shops.
