Meet Lilac Rose

Lilac Rose

Lilac Rose is one of the art dolls from my new multidisciplinary art installation “Senses That Sin”. I drew my inspiration for this exotic/erotic experience from flowers and their lush surroundings that can tickle our senses when we allow ourselves to fully enjoy their offering. Lilac Rose was created from recycled finds: a vintage candy dish and a drawing model doll, which were both found at the free store on Cortes Island. I started by covering her body with gold leaf (because one person’s trash is another’s treasure), I then used some of the cotton batting I use to stuff my art dolls to create a bubble bath and added dried pressed flowers to give the idea of a lush bubble bath. The ensemble is meant to wake up the senses that make every life worth living, or in this case, every item that deserves to be refurbished into a luxury thought brought to life.

To experience the full art installation come alive please watch the live performance video featuring Namchi Bazar and Del Rivera!!!

New Work, New Art Installation On the Way…

The time has come for me to get back to work in my amazing studio! I have been waiting for this season to come so I could settle back into a routine of creating art daily. After spending the last many months preparing the birth of a new installation – based on pressed flowers I collected as well as naturally dyed random items, it’s now time to put all the pieces together. I am taking things to a new level with the techniques I have learned over the last year and combining them in my own unique way; only time shall tell what it will grow into. I look forward to sharing the process with you all. Here is a sneak-peek at the beginning stages of something new and exciting!!!

(lamp shade, gold leaf, pressed flowers) what does this equals to? The start of a new art installation!
