One World One Heart 2011
Welcome! If you've never visited before, I am delighted to meet you. Whether an old friend or a potential new one, it's great that you have dropped by.
Hooray for the Internet and for OWOH, allowing us to make new contacts and expand our horizons through the joys of blogging!
I'm Jules, artist, doll maker and creator. I am passionate about art and the world of craft and handmade items, and I'm never happier than when I'm creating - except maybe whenI'm admiring other people's work! I love to try new media and new methods of working.
Whether it is doll making;
or embroidery design;
painting and drawing;
or anything else!
Usually, when not doing my day job, I'm in my studio, running between projects - or if the weather's fine, I can be found outside, in our wildlife /veggie garden;
or walking through our local woods and wonderful historic places - with my trusty camera to hand.
I love to travel and visit new places, and I'm always looking for the interesting and unusual in the world around us, camera and sketch book at the ready.
You will probably notice a few themes running through these pictures! I'm constantly inspired by the natural world, culture, history, and the world of faerie.
I'm joining in with OWOH again this year, because it's such an amazing concept. It was was such fun last time and I met some wonderful people from all around the world who have since become great blogging friends. I hope to connect with more like minded people this year.
My art is primarily based around face and form, so for my door prize I am going to offer one of my 'girls', in some format or other - she may be a painting similar to this one;
or perhaps a very simple doll, or possibly appear as an image on another item. It's going to be a surprise!
If you would like to own one of my creations then all you need is to have a current and active blog. Just leave me a comment on this post. I will pick a winner using a random generator, and that name will be announced in a post on 17th February. I will also e-mail them to let them know they have won!
Good Luck and thank you for participating!
I hope you'll visit again, I am looking forward to meeting lots of new friends on this exciting and inspiring journey. x
