So many things inspire my art work; films, paintings, books, clothing and lately even children's cartoons (probably because that's all I get a chance to watch nowadays). But my mind goes crazy with ideas when I walk into the clothing and home accessory store, Anthropologie. Their website description is right on point with how I feel when I visit their stores, "Anthropologie offers a one-of-a-kind and compelling shopping experience that makes women feel beautiful, hopeful and connected." Getting their catalog mailed to my home is a nice "quick fixe" for when I can't make it to the mall. One photo in the catalog struck my attention in particular. Here is the photo and the doll it inspired me to make. I named her, "Lesia".
Lesia stands 12 1/4" high in a long teal dress with lime accents, a pair of summery espadrilles, and a colorful scarf decorates her beautiful dark brown hair twists. She comes to you with a cherry wood box in which she holds her five gold bracelets.
