I have always had a vivid imagination and believed in fairy tales,
mythical creatures, aliens and outer space...
As a little girl I always believed that my dolls were alive…
and yes that they spoke to me...
Now my childhood dreams have become a reality
and my dolls really do speak to me in so many ways!!!
I am a self taught doll artist and come from Sydney, Australia.
Chiara Venice Art Dolls officially began late 2013.
My medium of choice is cloth,
but I am venturing into a combination of clay and cloth also.
I love the process of transforming an idea into a pattern/a sculpt,
then into a doll, then to add all the elements needed to bring it to life
and give it it's very own soul, it always strikes me as mystical!
My art dolls do not conform to one particular genre or style.
The one thing that I do maintain and love to create are big alluring eyes
that are in a way, unnerving at times.
I feel this is what holds the spirit of my dolls soul
and if their eyes are following you I have indeed succeeded!
"Art Dolls are the key to my unconscious mind,
my way down the rabbit hole,
my looking glass into the world around me and beyond."
