Whimsical handmade needle felted and crocheted ornamental and toy dolls inspired by my love of magic, myth, and mysticism. Some contain old fashioned music boxes or rattle or squeak! Lots of mermaids and fairies, many designed as wall decor or mobiles. Sold on LaMagaCrafts on Etsy. I cover the shipping cost. US sales only right now. Treat yourself while saving the world: 10% of each sale goes to to the International Rescue Committee (IRC) or the Children's Defense Fund.
I am medical writer/editor and also an independent researcher, educator, and creative with interests in myth, magic, and spirituality, which inform my art and illustration and portraits. Check out my YouTube channel and my cross-genre fantasy fiction Sorcerers and Magi series.
Acrylic and gouache had been my preferred media for awhile, but then I went digital. For my art and illustration, I use both portrait photography and painterly techniques in PhotoShop. I then became a needle felting and art doll-making enthusiast. Check out my Portfolio and my Dolls! pages.
I seek to create magical and spiritual art and illustration that draws the viewer into an ineffable sense of mystery and spiritual revelation. In my art and illustration and portraits, I want to make you long for what you most loved about fairy tales and reflect on what your most magical and spiritual aspirations are.
