These paper dolls are inspired by the fashion industry and the joy I had when I was young. Like many little ones, I loved playing with dolls. I would create elaborate fantasy outfits made out of toilet paper, each a unique creation. Now that I am all grown up I wonder how do these fashion fantasies reflect onto the everyday person?
This mixed media piece features my original photography mounted in a 2" deep handmade white shadow box frame. I paint with translucent india ink and water on the inside of the plexiglass and finish by adding some vinyl detailing. When the light illuminates the piece, a layer of coloured reflection is revealed.
