These are mixed media Native American inspired katsina dolls made with game pieces from checkers game and wire.
Continuing my work with monoprinting and a new head. The pics on the right side are completed with using other mediums to finish the piece. The pics on the left is where I stopped the monoprint process.
I started to work on an on-line monoprinting class and the instructor is an illustrator who uses whimsical animal figures as part of her imagery. Not really my thing, but have been learning new techniques working with the Gelli Plate.
Indian doll ornament I made several years ago. It is made with leather, felt, wire, paint and horsehair.
I took an Native American Indian drypoint etching and layered it over a collagraph print. I photoshop the images until I had a composition that I was pleased with.
My own vision of a Katsina done in
mixed media assemblage
It’s been a while since I last posted on this blog!! I have plans on posting more on a regular basis. I have been working on some new work and hopefully I will have it posted this coming week. The Indian Maiden and Child is a doll I created a few years back. She is made from wood, leather, horse hair, various fabrics, feathers, and beads. She measures about 10″ in height.
Finally found some time to work on new work. I’ve been working out in my head the design and construction for these ornies.
