Hand stitched dolls and soft sculpture -3D Work
My three dimensional soft sculptural work uses patchwork, applique, visible stitching , tearing and wrapping. The fabric I use is reclaimed from many sources or offcuts.
Each figure is made in a number of pieces generally two or more. They range from 8″ – 20cm to 7o” – 180cm. My influences are the aesthetics of African and Folk art.
The smaller work can be propped up or are freestanding, the larger pieces are either designed to be hung on a wall or are freestanding sculptures.
All work is FOR SALE and is available at Merakidolls.com
