ART DOLLS WITH A VINTAGE TWIST

ART DOLLS, DECORATIONS AND CAKE TOPPERS BY ARTIST JEANETTE LEARY

THE ICING

When I accessorize my creations with vintage finds, paint and glitter, I compare myself to a pastry chef icing a cake! It is the sweetest process of my art.
************************************************
WHAT MAKES MY HEART SKIP A BEAT?

A twinkly old piece of costume jewelry, a rusty piece of hardware, a frayed satin ribbon, a vintage button in a deliciously gaudy color, old sheet music and glitter in every color of the rainbow!
************************************************
WHAT MAKES MY HEART SING?

Combining these retro and twinkly ingredients to make something truly unexpected and unique. Something dreams are made of.
************************************************
HOW I GOT HOOKED!

I have always felt the need to create and have a particular passion in decorating for the holidays. Twenty years ago I wandered into the library and found a book on how to make an art doll by EJ Taylor. I was never much of a fan of dolls but the pictures in his book and his unique style took my breath away. It was a magical giddiness that swept me into the store to buy clay and tools. I am forever hooked!

My style has evolved over the years. My love of vintage has been the driving force of my inspiration. I search antique stores, flea markets, yard sales and online for vintage treasures that I can use for my creations.

All of my Santa figures have some vintage elements added to their accessories. My postcard fairies have vintage postcard wings. I also create other whimsies that may not have vintage things attached to them but are inspired by vintage style.
************************************************
IN THE STUDIO

My creative process begins slowly and quietly with the sculpting of the faces and usually ends in a whirl of chaos with open drawers, spools of ribbons and a floor covered with a confetti of paper, fabric and glitter! I usually start a project with a "tentative" plan which more often then not morphs into something different as I never feel finished with the need to always add, layer, and add some more!
************************************************
MY VISION

My end goal is to make a whimsical treasure that brings out the inner child. Something that is truly unique that you can't find anywhere else. More then anything I hope my creations bring a bit of magic to your life!
