DESCRIPTION

Painting these Russian dolls unleashed a cast of characters that continues to grow, from demure princesses to an accident prone butcher. They may be alter-egos of mine, but do I want to go there? As well as the dolls (really ...a misnomer if ever there was one, these are not for children!), there will be some 2D work, some prints, and maybe a painting or two.

The company are hand painted with acrylics on wood, with a protective coat of varnish. The prints are layered monotypes, using stencils and acrylics.
