Heart, soft sculpture


I'm continuing my exploration of soft sculptures.

Why heart shapes?
Why are we so fascinated with the idea of a human heart?
So much of what we do in our lives, and who we are, is connected with our hearts. So many poems, novels, all kinds of literary works were written about it, throughout human history, and yet, do we really understand it?
Can we really grasp this vast idea about the heart's emotions, feelings, desires or anything else connected to it?

Every stitch, every bead, every thread I applied to these pieces represents the idea of this complexity of the human heart - that incredibly mysterious, and certainly extraordinary component of our human nature.

Art dolls



Here is a little series of art dolls I made recently. They're made with up-cycled fabrics, some of them hand dyed. They're embellished with bead embroidery and free form hand embroidery.
