Interactive art works at the museum of childhood....

I have been doing some interactive art with the visitors in gallery 8 and its really been a joy :)


The children helped me create this bunny picture, using old national trust magazines...





The very large painting below of the bunny girl sisters awaits added work, that I will get the visiting children to help me with.


On the priestess picture below, I got the children to stick on leaves using, the old nat trust magazines again, but sticking to the green colours.

Lovely Dutch Dolls at the museum of childhood.........

As some of you know, I like to make these woodens dolls myself sometimes, but I never fail to be impressed by the originals, and here at sudbury hall we have some real beauties. Heres the first in a series of them that I will be documenting on here.

She has a wonderful smocked dressed and detail.


I am loving the blue cord contrast, belt around her tiny waist.


A beautiful painted and well worn, with love, face.

Time for Reflection........

Ok its that time of the year again, spring cleaning of mind, body and spirit.
I have taken a week out just recently , to take stock and plan and fine tune my year ahead.
My website is nearly complete, etsy nearly how I want it, I plan to re-arrange my blogg a little, and get my life and work back on track.
Its easy for us to over do it on many levels and to drown ourselves with worries that are beyond our control, as are other peoples perceptions of how things should be. We have to be true to our selves , and take time out to heal and be strong again.
Time to face our demons and turn them into angels.......
