Drawing day at the Museum of Childhood

Posted on

I spent this afternoon at the Bethnal Green Museum of Childhood, filling my little sketchbook with drawings of inspirational toys.

This Museum has been my favourite and most visited for many years and a great deal of my signature pieces such as ‘Space Doll’ have been pieced together from collections of drawings taken here.
Vintage Toys evoke a great many memories of days spent daydreaming of phantasmagorical worlds in which animals and toys could talk to me…..toys weren’t so interactive children of the past had to use their imagination……

I feel in this day and age contemporary dolls have lost their charm and character….
