My hubby is getting concerned with all of the "taxidermy" that is going up all over the house!
I just cant help it! I love this relief technique! I am desperately seeking some other samples from artists who do this technique...so if you are out there please send me a link to your site! I spend about 8 hours on these guys...which satisfies my need for instant gratification...as long as I can start and finish a project in the same day, I am a happy camper.
The philosophy I live by is simply : the best way to learn is to just do it! This lion is a product of that, and I certainly learned a lot! Inspired by stumbling upon the awesome Birgitte Krag Hansen's website, I am thrilled with the results, and I am already planning many other relief type sculptures. It is fun and addicting to watch their faces come to life. I am so intrigued by needle felting because it is hard to believe you can sculpt such detail with one tiny little needle!

I was surfing for inspiration, and definitely found some from the incredibly talented Andrea Graham
This is my attempt at a river bed. Landscapes are so fun...however I felt like I couldn't stop adding to it. Finally it was exhaustion that decided when to call it quits! LOL.
