New Art, New Shop

How lucky you are to meet Ava! As a child she was carefree, gregarious, and hopeful. But at she became older, she became an outcast. It was difficult finding a place to belong, never quite fitting in. Ava found it hard to embrace her uniqueness and often went to the forest for solace. At age nineteen, she was caught in a dangerous lightening storm while wandering through the forest. A nearby tree was struck, trapping Ava. The thunder drowned out her cries and her desperate pleas for help were carried off in the wind.

Ava awoke as a new spirit during the Autumn season. she was surrounded by crisp piles of colorful leaves. These were imprinted on her altered mind, burned into her still smoldering dress. For once she felt beautiful and the emptiness and lonliness she felt for so long was replaced by a new hope and appreciation for nature. Forever she was a forest maiden. Forever she would belong.

Made with paper clay, acrylics, fabric

Ava is now listed in my Etsy shop-yes, I actually have one now!-along with my other hanging art dolls, prints, and originals. I'm still in the process of adding more to the shop every day, especially original artwork. so feel free to stop by and take a look around. I have an art announcement next week of something fun i'll be offering, only here on my blog!
