Vintage Doll Series

Posted on

I’ve spent the last few days working on a new series of ink drawings which feature vintage dolls as they are (only added an injection of colour). For my initial research I went back to the places which first inspired me to draw dolls…….Pollock’s Toy Museum & The Museum of Childhood, it was interesting to make a visit ten years later and re-draw the very same dolls which sparked my interest for what is now my predominant muse all these years later………….

 

In Pollock’s Toy museum I feel instantly at home in the ‘doll’s room’ as I reminisce my nineteen year old self and how cosy and inspired I felt in this rickety old house-museum away from the hustle and bustle of central London.
