Do you ever feel that the art you’re making has the power to transform your path in life? I’m begin to wonder if my art dolls have that power.
Since I’ve made the leap and started making art dolls my work has appeared twice in the Crafts Report magazine; I’ve been accepted into the Paradise City Arts Festival, a local gallery where I consign my functional art has asked me to bring in some art dolls to sell and now I find my Celtic Spirit Doll Messenger featured “In the Spotlight” on Go-Make-Art.
Go-Make-Art is run by Stacey Apeitos which features a wonderful online ezine Astarte Mega-Zine. Stacey also owns the blog Ispirato.
Perhaps it is because my art dolls come from the heart. I know I have a connection with them and that connection sometimes reaches other people. Sometimes it is luck; you submit a piece to magazine or a jury and the work clicks with the person on the other end. Whatever it is, I’m starting to believe in the transformative nature of art dolls. I know they are transforming me.
