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.

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.
The Yei is regarded as a supernatural being by the Navajo, and they are believed to be the first to inhabit the earth. Before the Yei left earth, they left instructions with the people on how to live an easier life.
The male Yei is depicted in sandpaintings with a round head and the female Yei has an angular head.
This untitled piece was inspired by Tony Abeyta, who is this amazing Native American Mixed Media Artist. His new charcoal and ink wash drawings are beautiful.
