Meet Steampunk Soul Sister Agnes. She doesn't understand why the inky black stuff keeps spilling out of her mouth, then again, nothing has been the same since the Evil Soul Sucker came to Creativity.
Sister Agnes is 9 1/2" tall x 4" x 3" deep. She has vintage watch parts for her right eye, and another vintage piece under her left. There is also a vintage watch part on her chest, with a vintage rosary piece and watch gear. At her waist hangs vintage rosary beads and a beautiful vintage cross. She is hand sculpted over an armature (no molds ever) out of polymer clay. Her left arm is some kind of metal found object with a piece of a wooden ruler. I hand painted her in layers with oil paints.
Hope everyone is doing well. I know I promised to be a better blogger, but I've been super busy. STJ Soiree went very well for me, even though I couldn't be there in person. Five of my pieces will be in Art Doll Quarterly in the Winter issue, which hits the stands on November 1 :o) I've seen the sneak peek and it looks fabulous! The dolls are on a red background, now why didn't I ever think of that? I'm also working on some pieces for a gallery :o) So lots going on, I promise I haven't been slacking! The nun however is available in my etsy shop! http://www.etsy.com/listing/82730823/steampunk-souls-mixed-media-art-doll
Back to work I go...more later on the magazine and gallery...xo Michele
I'm like most artists, I've been creating something for as long as I can remember. I have explored many types of media and love experimenting with new things. Mixed media seems to be where my heart belongs. I can combine my love of painting, sculpting, adding found object all into one. The Steampunk Soul series evolved after I took a job with a corporation--the Soul Sucker. I hope you enjoy my artwork! xo Michele
