New art Dolls


I've been busy. These are my new loves. Each have their own personal story. They are selling quite fast, but I still have a few in my shop. I will be making more girlies next week. Happy weekend! xo

I've been working on many projects




Here's a peek at some of the art I've created lately. Right now I am passionate about my art dolls. They are called Snippets of Soul Stories. Each one has a story. And the stories are snippets from my past. I'll be teaching a class on how I make them soon. To see more, see my facebook page at tarasartcamp. Hugs! xoxo

"Veronica"

Veronica is a sweet girl who likes chocolate chip cookies. She is made from vintage fabric from the thrift store, polyester fiberfill, and she has a hand painted original face, created by me. I use acrylic paints in all my work. She measures about 10 inches tall and she is looking for her forever home. To see more of my art dolls look for tarasartcamp over at Etsy. xoxo

Art Dolls

I've made some new art dolls and they are in my shop now. They are fun to make and collect. I have a collection of my own. They can sit on a shelf or hang.

"Molly" is now in my shop. I love creating faces, I never know how they are going to turn out. I like how my images come out and "speak to me". I love using lots of texture in the background. Gouache is my new favorite art supply. It spreads around easily with a bristle brush and I like the effect. You can see her in my shop

A summer day for painting


I love painting outside on my deck in the summer. It's lovely outside today. I'm painting with mostly watercolor, it's easier to take outside with me.




Willow likes to join me outside on lovely days like this.

New work for sale

I've been busy creating lovely works of art on 140lb cold press watercolor paper.  I like the option of my buyers being able to frame these the way they wish.  My first piece is title "Trust".  She is created with lots of background texture and collage elements.  I use pastels, and acrylic, and gouache around the frame of her face.  I love how each of my faces turns out different, however my style still eeps through. I love how she turned out, there is so much going on here.

My other piece that is available today is titled "Birthday". Two friends are sharing a loving moment. It is more whimsical than the first piece I listed today. I painted this work with acrylics and pastels. It measures 9x 12, and is created on 140lb watercolor paper.
