Welcome to "The Spirit Woods"
The seed for this project was planted a couple of years ago when I was looking for something new and challenging to get the creative juices flowing. I found my inspiration when I stumbled upon pictures on the Internet of some very unusual looking mushrooms. I was struck by how they were both alien-like and yet oddly beautiful. I began to play with the idea of incorporating the subject into my doll making. From there, the imagery spilled over into other areas. I began to imagine an entire body of work dedicated to the subject. Then, of course, my fascination with moths also came into play and before I knew it, a narrative began to take form culminating in a journal with a series of accompanying art works. Below you will find the completed journal. Over the next few weeks I will be posting "work in progress" pictures of a few of the projects.
