Bobbins & Bones
The best description of my art is that it’s a kind of exorcism, casting off invading creatures by projecting them into existence. It’s protection from the things in my head. Horrors beyond life’s edge that we can only imagine - born from neuroses, nightmares and hallucination. Wistful and restless moods inspired by those who tell tales of carnivorous houses and overgrown graveyards, footsteps on stairs and scratchings on doors, howlings and shriekings, groanings and creakings and clanking of chains, of hooded monks and headless horsemen, swirling mists and shrouded spectres, creatures under sheets or under the stairs, vampires and blood hounds, bats and spiders and deathwatch beetles, of vanished corpses and mummies curses. My need is to rid myself of these creatures, exorcizing them the only way I can, by creating them.
My dolls are OOAK original designs that will not be reproduced. Except for the basic body, I don’t use patterns, everything is created free-hand to insure a true OOAK look. Every part of the doll is hand-stitched and all accessories are hand-made by me.bobbinsandbones.blogspot.com
