The Story of My Dolls
Votives & Iconics

Air Votive
Pele - Goddess of Fire

This doll was made for my daughter who is a Buddhist. Tara is the "Mother of all the Buddhas" and the spirit of active compassion.

Beads on black velvet
Ziggy aka Alter Ego
Zombie of the Roses shows my fascination with duality; figures which are both good and evil.
Both are needed to present 'reality'.

Roses have thorns. Golliwogs are toys, until you show their dual nature and then they become 'other'.
