the Summer Beast


“…Only one of me is sad, all the others are quite happy…”

the Summer Beast flies in bright colors,
she is half woman, half horse,
her tears feeding the flowers that grow from her chest

This piece you are viewing is called the Summer Beast,
and she is a textile sculpture of a imagined mythological creature

She is painted in bright orange and blue and wears a piece of faux fur on her chest with a little red bell. On her back I sewn a piece of lovely India textile with embroidery and sequins.
I painted several faces on her and made her a little hat creation with different bits of fabric.

The Summer Beast measures 39 by 39 cm’s and hangs from a hook



My art dolls are not intended to be toys and should be handled with care.
Keep them away from water and direct sunlight as much as possible.
Pieces can be carefully dusted with a dry clean cloth.
Due to small parts they are not suitable for young children.
Textiles can get damaged by moth infestation, keep your house moth free.
If you think your art piece may have been in touch with moths,
I advice you to wrap the piece in a clean cloth and freeze it for 2/3 days.
Then remove from freezer for a day and repeat.
