Winter Sphinx stands about 24" tall, sculpted in Premier air-dry clay with washi paper and wood.
Friends, so sorry to have been blog-neglectful! I aim to mend my ways in 2016. Here's the Morrigan, Celtic battle goddess, shape-shifting phantom queen. She just got lucky and won the popular vote competition for Infected By Art (IBA) Volume 4. Thank you, everyone who participated!! So honored. There is a great deal ofastonishing work to see at Infected By Art, and the book will be incredible!
The Morrigan, mixed-media, about 19" tall.
Banshee is wearing a shroud, or my idea of one. As you can see from the back, walking would be difficult. I wanted to imply some other, less familiar, mode of locomotion...
She's an 8 inch figure in Kato Polyclay, dressed in washi paper. Hair combing is something Banshees (when they are not wailing, I assume):
She awaits a leopard.
My take on a little Yuki Onna, snow spirit:
She's a miniature in Kato polymer clay, with silk and mohair.

My oh my, I must re-invent my photo area. In Providence, I had a little sun porch, perfect for the purpose; but alas, no more. My Cousin Mab's decorative paper is helping me out here, but I must remake the Faery Garden. But first, to refine Eros' drape.
Several small beings are pending... so, something really new soon! My apologies for sorely neglecting my blog,
faithful Friends. Thank you for continuing to visit. My goal is to spend some real time here, regularly, but I am still in the midst of storm, as it were. But we shall prevail, and see wonders yet!

An old Selkie. Rather, an old picture of a young Selkie -- done perhaps ten years ago. Ink, watercolor pencil, with unorthodox (even uncouth) use of watercolor. Arches Hot Press paper, off a block, Caran D'Ache watercolor pencils, which are great if you favor drawing over painting, but desire colour.
I aim to do some more Selkies, in two and three dimensions.
Just a quick image...
