Some think my art is creepy and disturbing.
Then they actually talk to me and find that it represents love and rescue.
Most of you know about my love of dolls and doll parts. It all comes from a story in my early childhood.
I save and rescue the dolls that have been discarded in life and try to breathe new life into them for someone else to pick up and love.
Maybe they evoke a memory or feeling from your childhood.
This series of doll parts are all left arms that have been inked with flash art tattoos.
Why only lefties, because I am a leftie.
The story for the anchor one goes like this...
Her dad was a sailor.
When she was just a tot her dad set off to sea, never to return.
All she could remember about him as time went on was that Anchor on his left arm.
So she tattooed her doll, the only other thing she loved and could hang on to, with the anchor.
Holding it every night wishing on the stars over the sea that he would, one day, come back to her.
The Hearts are easily explained as
I wear my heart on my sleeve.
So see, these are not things to creep you out or disturb you. These parts and dolls were all loved by someone at sometime and it is good to give them new life for someone new to love.
