|Sandra Monat, mixed media artist,|
First of all, thank you Linzie for the invitation!
Hi all, I want to give you a glimspe into my studio.
It's part of my living space. Living and working under the same rooftop is perfect for me. Two years ago I gave up my studio outside and decided to work again "at home".
I love to start whenever I get the urge even in the middle of the night. And my cats love their "Mommy" being at home the whole day ;-). Whenever the weather allows I work outside
After years of only painting I felt the need to try something new and to work three dimensional. One year ago, I was given a sewing machine
and I fell in love with textile arts.
The birds were some of the first textile creations. Many other creatures followed. You also can see my foundlingsheep Friederike! on the picture below. I found out that the brains of sheeps and humans complement one another to perfection :-)
My newest designs are spiritual dolls. I created these dream guardians (they are for people like me, suffering from insomnia). Dream guardians take care of your sleep and dreams. They really work! :-)
Manas are the female counterparts, white, wise woman who keep ancient knowledge.
Thanks for reading!
