Here are some of my latest creature creations. These are hand drawn and then painted with fabric dye of various colours. Then I iron them to heat-set the dye, sew on a backing with some vintage fabric from my collection and stuff them with EcoFill, a polyester stuffing made from recycled pop-bottles. I have a lot of fun making these guys. I love painting, but I often need a purpose for painting, and these pillow creatures provide the perfect outlet. Check out more here.
My next project inspiration is to use my husband's discarded drum-skins as canvases - pre-framed and all. I have been meaning to prime them with white but living in a rental doesn't provide much workspace and the weather has been too cold to get outside and spray-paint ... but I think today might be my opportunity.
