My latest art doll is now exhibiting and available to buy at the fabulous Inverarity Gallery, in ‘nine lives- the return of the cat’!

Link abovešŸ–¤šŸ±

 

The little witch is made from clay over a wireĀ  and fabric frame, and is handpainted. She is wearing little faux leather boots and stripey stockings under vintage cotton bloomers. Her grey dress has embroidered and lace details. Her hat is made from cotton, trimmed with lace and has a hand made little crow skull attached to it. She wears a tiny planchette with an all-seeing eye around her neck and is holding another planchetteĀ  in her hand, and inĀ  the centre of her forehead is a light catching shiny silver star. Her two ‘familiars’ are needle felted over wire frames and are both wearing little bells on ribbons and bows around their necks. The black and grey cat has a half moon on his forehead. They are seated in a glass dome, on a wooden base- handpainted Ouija board. The dome can be removed and the doll can be taken off the base, but she is fixed in a kneeling position. Beware , one of the cats is a bit grumpy!

Daughters of a forest warden on a grand estate, the big-hearted sisters, Freya and Faye, grew up exploring the vast woodland and knew every tree, plant, beast and bird that dwelt there. They were all family. So when members of the family begin to go missing or are found injured, they realise the poachers have moved in, and the girls are filled with a fury theyā€™ve never known before. It was time to fight back and that meant taking that fight into the night-time, where the poachers stalk.

a
They secretly set to work to save their friendsā€¦armed with their anti-poacher secret aprons, filled with anti-poacher tools, a little red first aid bag with ointments and bandages, – and a little bottle of skull capped poison (just in case the poachers donā€™t heed their warnings) and placing on their heads a garland of funeral pyre flowers wrapped around the skulls of forever treasured bird friends – to remind them of who they are making a stand for, and lighting their way with a candle in a jar, (covered with a muslin cloth to prevent the moths drawn to the flame from suffering scorched wings) ā€“ they pull up the hoods of their black capes and step out into the night…
