See us at ARTWALK

Lake Country Artwalk takes place Sept 10 and 11 in Lake Country (formerly known as Winfield) just north of Kelowna.

It’s the largest art show in the Okanagan Valley, and well worth a visit. Ron will be introducing his latest series of paintings featuring the old boats of the Okanagan, including sternwheelers and tugs.

Hope to see you there!

Living the Creative Life

Posted in art, dolls, Marcia's world of Art, Stacy Studios on August 2, 2011 by stacystudios
People say I live a creative life. I would have to agree since I spend most of every day creating something… painting, making jewellery, sewing doll clothes, writing articles like this one, inventing characters that will become art dolls, creating graphic design for Stacy Studios’ self promotion, making display sets for photographing articles to post for sale on the internet, etc. etc. etc…

I am obsessed with making fine art dolls and doll clothes. Dolls are magical! Dolls are filled with fantasy!  It”s as if a moment in time is captured, making you wonder if they wake up at night and dance, tell stories, do their chores, dream their dreams and fight their causes! 
Imagine the scene as they interact in the silence of the night, when the moon is full and the world is asleep! 

My art dolls are completely hand made with every detail painstakingly and lovingly created by me! 
There are no purchased heads, hands, shoes, clothing or accessories, just the raw materials; silks, beads and polymer clay! 

You can see three of these dolls at the Shatford Centre’s newest art show, “Living the Creative Life” until Sept 11, 2011
