About

Fantasy Creatures from the Highlands of Scotland

My chosen name is Magweno and needs a little explanation. It's pronounced "mah-gweh-no" and is an amalgamation of my full name - Maddy Gwenyth Norval. (It's fun to try this with your own name, my OH is Rojojahu!) Makes a bit more sense now!

Magweno Art Dolls started in my final year of University studying Illustration in 2011. Art dolls always captured my imagination with their versatility and distinct anatomy, and I always love getting my hands dirty! I illustrated a short story called the "Laird of Morphie" and the interest sparked from that led me to starting my own business making and selling art dolls on commission.

I'm now at the stage (time of writing: Feb 2014) that I can creature limited edition lines of cast fantasy creatures and customise the colour palettes. It works well for both sides, I can have a high turnover and unleash creativity, the customer can get a beautiful work of collectible art for an affordable price. Those who want something more special contact me directly (hello@magweno.com) for an entirely custom art doll, these start at £180 but are fully articulated and unique.

I wear my heart on my sleeve when it comes to my work and every comment or criticism is read and considered. I love getting messages, no matter what they're about, so please feel free to email me or send me a direct message here! I love getting to know people, and especially love talking about Scotland - my home country.

My work is heavily influenced by folk lore and mysterious creatures in tales, specifically Scottish and Celtic folk lore. I live in North Scotland, where the land is wild and remote and you can feel the roots of the earth below you. Forests and meadows attract me in particular, and you will find a lot of my work plays on this along with the ever popular "cute" aspect! Pampered pet dragons, doe-eyed kirins and round fuzzy highland cow balls are the order of the day!

I also have an intense love of bright, colourful tones. Rich, spring-like florals and fresh palettes are my favourite. Combining the two - Scotland and spring flower colours - yields interesting and bright results!
