Petite Poupee / Munecas / Little Dolls
I create dolls through the medium of paper mache as a way to express myself through visual arts. I love colors and I use my intuition for arranging colors. Paper mache is fun and affordable, but it requires quite a length working process. I use newspaper, water and Elmer’s glue to make a pulp. I use found objects such as a fabric, paper paraphernalia, old bottoms, and shiny things to decorate the dolls. Every doll I create is a unique piece of love and craft, to resemble to ethnic figures. I want my dolls to evoke a joyful and charismatic look. Some dolls might be used either as a decorative or a utilitarian piece.
I grew up in South America, lately I moved to New York to teach art in public schools. I graduate with a Masters in Art Education, from the City College of New York in 2001. When I am not busy working on my art pieces I practice meditation. I am looking forward to embrace this art adventure with great spirit. I am on my way to create art depicting those special moments when art and life intertwine.
