NOTE:I don't usually do allot of repainted dolls.But this one has special meaning.I had him in a bin of dolls to redo or use for art in my living room.And in feb of this year a tornado ruined my home by throwing a tree into it.It landed about 6 inches from my head while I was sleeping.It totally ruined my home and also flooded the living room and kitchen.When I was going through my belongings in the house to see what was salvageable.I found this doll had been knocked out of the box,it's finger had gotten broken off and it's clothes had molded.So I had to make something with it as a reminder.
PAYMENT PLANS:If you need to the doll can be paid for in 3 payments over three back to back months.You must put down a deposit for me to hold it for layaway. If you need to do the payment plan thing drop me a line before buying.
I am a published and exhibited doll artist.
Ugly Art Dolls have been displayed in galleries, art shows and in the St. Elizabeth's Doll Museum; my dolls have also have been featured in print, in magazines such as Bizarre, Lollipop, SPIN,Swag Huffington Post,Etsy's Keep It Weird blog and Haute Macabre.
My art dolls have also been photographed in John Santerineross' photography book, "Dream." Ugly Art Dolls have also been used as photo props by Kattaryna Breaux, Caleb Storms, The Joker/Razorblade Grin, and Saryn Angel.They have also been seen on ABC,MSNBC,CBS and other major news stations when I was interviewed about my famous painting Squirrel Winkelhimer Smith.
My main inspiration for my art dolls and other art is drawn from imagery captured within my dreams,and my artwork is also influenced by religious,spiritual and occult imagery.
My dolls are what is known as fine art dolls; they are not children's toys. Some of the subject matter dealt with in my work is very serious, and the dolls are also too delicate to be handled by small children.
As well as a professional doll artist, I'm a established alternative model, modeling extensively for photographers such as Steve Diet Goedde, Lithium Picnic and John Santerineross.
