A one of a kind costumed doll will become available for sale through Durwaigh Art Gallery in late October.

This is a very special occasion because this will be the very first doll to be sold through an art gallery as opposed to my website, or even sold at all for that matter, considering the close proximity of this show to my first Solo exhibition. A year ago I made all my finished costumed dolls unavailable for sale until after the end of this very important event of my career, so when the owner of the Duirwaigh Gallery approached me to create a piece for this show, I was a little bit hesitant, but then i found out that some of the most prominent and inspirational fairy artists in the field, such as Brian Froud and Kinuko Craft would be in the show as well, I couldn’t turn it down.

So, now i’m making a one of a kind, costumed Alice in Wonderland Doll for this show.

I’m very excited about this piece for two reasons: I’m replacing the universal, Disney version of Alice with my own interpretation of the character and using a combination of old and recently developed methods to create my vision.

The look behind my Alice is insipred by Eastern European Tradition of folk dress, decorative elements of Byzantinium and middle ages. I can’t say anymore for now. You’ll just have to find out on October 27th.
