Story - Art Doll by Theresa Wells Stifel

$204.00 $255.00

"I prefer Winter...Something waits beneath it; the whole story doesn't show." Andrew Wyeth's commentary on the fourth season seems a fitting quote to name the fourth of four in a series of art dolls based on the seasons.

Story is twenty seven inches tall when she is displayed on a wall. (My apologies but she is to look at and enjoy not for a child to play with.) Her white on white on white color scheme is of all found materials with the exception of her modern yarn hair. I hand embroidered her sweet face and made her face body out of vintage cotton and rayon blends. Story is stuffed with hypoallergenic poly-fiberfill. Her stockings are overlaid with lace and she has found vintage crochet appliques on her body. Her necklace is a long seventies piece wound around her neck numerous times. Story's body and skirt are made from remnants of a gifted wedding gown that had its own story to tell!

Please be in touch if you have any questions or need any more photos. I'm happy to mail outside the continental US, I can just add the difference to your invoice.

Thanks for visiting!
