Day of the Dead dolls
As a matter of fact, when I started making dolls my boyfriend suggested I contact a particular Texas artist, Julie Zarate, who’s work was heavily inspired by her Latina roots and Day of the Dead imagery. I have loved following her career but still did not know how exactly I wanted to create my own version of this traditional doll. It wasn’t until I saw her recent explorations of this theme that everything clicked. I don’t know why it took me this long.
So check out my Day of the Dead dolls at www.strangedolls.net. I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed creating them!
News! A Book!
Jesse Lyons is a photographer from the UK who, again, is someone I have gotten to know since I started making dolls. It just so happens that her medium is photography and her subjects are most often… dolls.
Last year I proposed we create a book and this is the outcome. I am truly delighted and excited by the final result and I hope you will all buy a copy for yourself and for a friend and enjoy the world that Jesse’s lens have captured using my Strange Dolls!
Mother’s Day Special
Only ONE of the “mother” dolls remain.
