Well as you can see below it's been a tough road with my dad passing away in October. Well no sooner did I start to try and get back into the swing of things, my oldest brother, who has been ill took a turn for the worse and passed away in March. At this point no sure when I'll feel like getting into my studio again. I've just had such a mental block that nothing is working out the way I would like....so I will be putting down the clay for a bit and hopefully with that break I can get my head straight again.
At least I have a distraction with the warmer weather knocking on our door. I'm so happy that the weather is finally starting to break some here in the northeast so I'm really looking forward to getting outside and doing some much needed yard work. Maybe finally with the arrival of spring and everything that is new and growing will finally snap me out of my lows.
To hopefully better times,

As I posted my dad passed away in October and 2 years earlier my mom passed away after a relatively short battle with lung cancer. My head just hasn't been into doing much of anything with the passing of both my parents.
I've recently picked up some clay again and I'm trying to get back into sculpting. I've restarted one of my male angels. I'm hoping to finally get some things done but time will tell. I'm really hoping to get something done on my Legolas doll as well. I've been working on a new armature for him for a while now. I have the leg portion done and I'm ready to sculpt the feet. Still working on the arms to get the armature ready for the hands and I have the support with the eyes set in to hopefully start working on his face.
So fingers' crossed that my head will work and I can get back to what I love doing.

Once you have joined you will be able to access areas of my site that are restricted to my members by simply clicking the link and adding your user name and password. (Note: there have been some problems with accessing these areas, if you have a problem leave me a message in my guestbook and I'll work to resolve it.)
I have available for members only tutorials for creating a variety of wire armatures for One of A Kind (OOAK) art dolls. These tutorials cover creating the most basic wire armature to the most complicated armature that replicates the human skeleton and everything in between. The larger armatures can be (and is recommended to be) used for multimedia art dolls. The first large armature has slip joints so each piece of the doll body can be made and then added to the main torso armature.
I've also have several fairy wing tutorials available that cover making wings with tissue paper, fantasy film and transparencies.
I will be adding new tutorials as time permits. I hope you find something useful here that will help with your fantasy creations.
