About the Lil' Outsiders:
Lil' Outsiders are my line of odd-ball artist dolls and plush (usually of the semi-anthropomorphic variety!) and are made using various mediums! The numbered series is only available in mohair and wool plush versions! I have been creating Lil' Outsiders since 2006 and many have found loving homes! Each animal is one of a kind and painstakingly created by hand!
You'll also find in the shop: handy dandy needle felting kits, zines, pins, paintings, and whatever other medium I happen to be dabbling in at the moment!

About

It all began in 425 square feet!

I started 425sqftart in a tiny (two bedroom!) apartment in Astoria, Queens in 2004. I found my way into needle felting a year later and then decided to combine needle felting with traditional teddy bear making methods and in 2006 Lil' Outsiders were born! Since then, numerous Lil' Outsiders have found homes across the globe.
There are several versions of Lil' Outsiders. Each one is painstakingly made from pattern design to completed funky lil' guy by hand.

    I am a fiber/mixed media artist of sorts who is a lucky mama & wife to an extremely fun-loving hubby, one comical almost four year old, & 3 crazy pups! My work has been featured in various teddy bear publications and Stuffed magazine.

A little bit about me:
I am a self taught artist of sorts who primarily works with wool,mohair, & clay...but every now and then I experiment with other mediums.

About my artwork:
Each piece is original, (often times based on the millions of odd ball little doodles laying around the studio) one of a kind, and painstakingly made by hand (if you've ever tried needle felting you know it takes forevvvveeerrrrr!). I always include a hang tag or sewn in tag...and sometimes both with each doll -depending on the medium used.

My Philosophy:
I believe in the idea that each and every one of us has the innate ability to create....we did it as children...no holds barred! Unfortunately, lo and behold comes adolescence or adulthood and most of us shrug our shoulders and say I "can't" draw, or sew,or paint...ect. I'm not sure why this happens...maybe some one tells us we can't or we lose confidence in ourselves...but to me...that is the beauty of art...it's subjective! what appeals to you may not appeal to me...& there's nothing wrong with that...it's what makes the world go 'round! It's my hope that in some small way each and everyone of us embraces that child within and creates in some way shape or form...it's a great soul healing thing...and god knows this world could use a little more of that!
