Fiber Art by Artist Victoria O'Neill

 

This piece was created by printing a photo on fabric of a painting I did back in the 80's. I embellished it with beads, sequins and decorative stitching. I am making a series of these. So many images I have made over the years are perfect for this.  Each one is displayed in a floating frame, sandwiched together with two pieces of glass. Ta Da! 

Here is another one from a collage....same process! 

This one is sold
                                                             This one is sold

Frida Kahlo Mermaid Dolls/Ornaments from Sew Bee Mine

 Visit my sewing Etsy Store for beautiful one of a kind Frida Kahlo Dolls.....including the paper doll, swinging tail magnet version.

The Fridas were created with my collage/drawing printed on fabric. So the face and body is similar but each one is unique.



Here is a video of the paper one, with tail swinging.

Virgin of Guadalupe Art Doll


 I have been in love with the image of The Virgin of Guadalupe ever since seeing her while traveling throughout Mexico and Central America in the 70's.

Here is a 12" Virgin of Guadalupe Hanging Doll Ornament from a recent series of one of a kind dolls created with Robert Kaufman fabric. She can be purchased on Etsy

Happy Birthday Paper Doll


My mother is turning 90 next week, 
so made her a paper doll birthday card.


                         



  Folding her arms and legs behind her makes it so

she fits right into a standard long envelope



I like the idea of making "holiday" paper doll cards 

and having them available for downloading and printing. 

Stay tuned for that.

Oh God! Make Me A Hollow Reed

Here is an attempt to illustrate the concept 
of being a conduit for the divine (love and creativity). 
A Google search for "hollow reed" found this beautiful song.
 Link below to have a listen.

Hollow Reed acrylic on canvas 30" x 40"



 Oh, God, make me a hollow reed, 

from which the pith of self hath been blown 

so that I may become as a clear channel 

through which Thy Love may flow to others.
