“Art Dolls” are a series of small people made from found objects. Some are “Spice Girls”, with bodies of pepper cans, tea tins and other flavorful containers. Some are made from toys, or boxes, or frames. Most of the faces are painted in oil, all are assemblages of ephemera.
You may discover antique arms or legs. Although they are wired together, these young women are quite fragile and not meant as toys.
They are rather social and look good grouped together. Consider taking two or three home. They are affable and uncritical. And, heaven knows, we could all use more friends.
