I only take on a small handful of commissioned pieces every year because they tend to stress me out and people often want portraits… I’m not the most confident portraitist.
However, if you ask me when the mood is right and my schedule is open, I give it my best effort.
Recently I finished a couple of wedding paper dolls for a lovely couple, Shauna & Cole. They are are to be wed at a beautiful farm which served as inspiration for the dolls and their accessories.
In the past, my portrait dolls were commissioned as anniversary gifts. The first year anniversary is celebrated with paper so it is a befitting gift.
This time the dolls were made for a wedding invitation. So cards were produced in addition to the assembled originals.
As always, it is a huge honor to be asked to create something that celebrates something so significant in someone’s life.
Here’s to a happy life together!
