It was suggested that we construct an Intuition Doll and bring it along for the weekend. We could use any materials we wanted and there were no boundaries whatsoever. This challenge was put forth by the inventive fiber artist Maria Wulf, creative spirit and wife of Jon Katz.
In my mind I saw this as being a totem like the Native Americans, pulling different elements that inspire me in my work. I for many years have felt a connection to Orient, perhaps from a previous life; the fabric I chose for the body reminded me of a Kimono. I added other elements that inspire me, a pin that has dog elements, another with the base of an Asian coin, A shell to pull in elements of the oceans, and a paintbrush as a weapon as I consider this my warrior for Art.
The head confounded me for a time, until I realized that I wanted it to have cat's eyes and the head just followed suit, one of my inner spirits is definitely feline. It was a challenge I was glad to have accepted, I haven't worked in 3-D for quite some time, but I feel this will help my work grow in ways I haven't even dreamed of.
