This is my favorite part of the process-designing and then building my wood base. I use a TRAMP ART technique of cutting & then layering flat pieces of wood shapes to create dimension. (chapter 3)
I pull out my power tools, draw and then redraw my pattern until the proportions are perfect. Viola', an ANGEL is born!
When I worked as a designer at ESPRIT in SF. in the 90’s, I couldn’t believe that I actually got paid, and paid well, to cutout PAPER DOLLS & then COLOR them in. It was my childhood dream job coming true. This new angel series brings me back to that time in my life.
