The Round Girl series is done from round Christmas balls and various fabrics. The heads are from 1940’s fashion dolls whose eyes open and close. In TWO GIRLS ONE MASK, the twins are two best friends who share a mask for the world and a dress too.

Another in this series is PICKING UP GUYS AT THE JEFFERSON BOWL. My girl likes to pick up guys at the bowling alley but wouldn’t be seen dead in bowling attire…

This is a SELF PORTRAIT. She has Lymphedma and her leg has a life of its own, going up and down at will, or when she eats Chinese food and cake.

    Keep these coming, Monica! I can totally relate to the round girl series, key word being round. I love how delicate yet totally funky everything is.

    Would love to know the size of these pieces.

    What’s the base of PICKING UP GUYS AT THE JEFFERSON BOWL made of? Kind of looks like soundproofing installation but then there’s that wavy stuff that goes all around it.

      thank you so much, i love knowing the girls are appreciated when they leave my bedroom..they are about six inches long, maybe 8..and the base is a piece of relatively thin wood i found on my friends porch..it is wrapped in fabric. and the wavy stuff around it is something to do with sewing..i also love round..it is my favorite shape and it can roll..
