Chicago Art Exhibit

There Is Healing In Art

Here are my dolls at the “There Is Healing In Art” art exhibit at the Thompson Center downtown Chicago. I went there today for the opening ceremony. The exhibit runs from today, May 2 – May 11. The second picture is my “sculpture” of a cloud with raindrops. I titled it “Rainy Day”. I have shared that on my blog a while ago. A second picture of my dolls. The next picture is another artists at the show. It blew me away. All of the artists are on a recovery journey healing from a mental illness. The next picture is me and the cool Thompson center behind me. I am wearing my infamous “16 skein” hooded cape. My hair is growing since I shaved it for children fighting cancer. The next picture is made by an artist who used spray paint to create this awesome picture. The next picture is a beautiful landscape. I am sorry I didn’t get all of the artists names. The bottom picture is the beautiful floor tiles where the ceremony was held. It was a great day that I got to spend with one of my favorite people. I will be continuing my story on why I needed crochet as a healing art. If you would like to order your own custom doll, I can create a doll that looks like a loved one. I will post a picture of a doll I made for my daughter from 2 pictures of her and I can do the same for you! Contact me at! May you all be blessed.

I crochet. A lot. I make just about everything you would need if you lived in a cabin in the woods. Not plates and an ax but all the soft stuff. Hats, mittens and scarves. Blankets and shawls, too. I haven't made a pillow yet but I do make dolls, stuffed animals and jewelry. I am inspired by our pioneering ancestors who had to make almost everything they needed. I'd like to get back to that. It is an antidote for our microwave, I-want-it-now society. So, browse and if you like something and want it made special, just for you, please email me or put your order in the comments. Thank you!
