THE SIREN 2.0
RECREATING AN OLD FAVORITE
One of the first elaborate pieces I made was The Siren. It started out as a watercolor painting and I decided to quill it. In the end it was a hybrid watercolor (back and foreground) and quilled piece. She was really popular, though I never really liked her. Recently a customer wanted me to remake her and I wanted to spiff her up a bit. So this time around I completely quilled the entire fore- and background as well as the mermaid. I improved upon her original hair and wove some beautiful green gilded paper imported from the UK into her tail. The colors in this version are so vibrant and alive. But, after spending an entire week on her nearly non-stop, it'll definitely be a while before I create The Siren 3.0.
