As a child, my favorite toys were my paper dolls and my Colorforms kits.
I enjoyed creating clothes and scenery for my dolls, and re-arranging them.
I decided to create a life-sized paper doll- with detachable wings and arms.
I wanted the "hole" in the belly to stay "open", so I could place whatever I wanted to on any given day inside, depending on my mood. Currently, a paper rose resides inside.
This piece was created for a show of drawings created by women in Poughkeepsie NY.
