Announcement   If you are drawn towards art which is symbolic, dreamy, and luminous in a dark and delightful way, then you have come to the right place.

My work has been described as
"where Lovecraft meets Poe",
"a delightful trip through the looking glass", and
"something from another world."

I handcraft each piece with obsessive detail from the inside out, because my art is my passion.

For more information and a catalog of past work, please visit www.woebegoneart.com.

I'm working on a new skull doll, and this one's a rabbit (see his teeth?). I haven't determined his outfit yet, but I'm excited to see how his personality will shape the final result.
I just completed this raven skull doll in full goth finery, including corselet. She is spoken for, but please see the other skull-headed dolls available in my online inventory!
Some new listings in my shop, including this majestic, full-size dragon doll. I've also moved some new items to the sale section. Please come visit my shop and look around sun_with_face PS I'm always available for questions!

About

I tend to see things a little differently

When you see things differently, this can earn you ostracism or derision. But if you are very lucky, that same unique perspective can be channeled into your art, opening doors to worlds previously unseen.

As a somber and lonely child, I would draw a world that suited me. Little pieces of pop culture I filed away as important markers, markers that developed into strong influences: The Addams Family and The Munsters, the fantastical narrative illustrations of Maurice Sendak and Edward Gorey, the paintings of Night Gallery and Disney's The Haunted Mansion.

These days, I am blissfully surrounded by a world influenced by my vision. It is a delight to make real the snippets and dreams and stories that get caught in my mind: turning canvas into dreamscape, pairing impossible partners, sculpting a legion of unusual talismen.

Every day I am in my home studio, transforming paint and clay and fabric into new, magical curiosities. It's my pleasure to share them with you, and put my art out into the world where it is meant to take root and grow, on its own accord, changing the parameters of the familiar landscape.
