Introduction I'm a Musician, Artist and Workshop Counsellor, who has lived and studied the ancient folk arts of Japan. My busy schedule includes Washi Paper, Dollmaking, jewellery, Mataro dolls, Palace Balls, Deco and paper clay sculptures. My favourite past-time is 3-D floral sculpting ... More recently, I've added the Powertex and Paverpol Sculpting mediums to my mixed media of creativity in efforts to energize the flow of fabric into my artwork. My creations often have an Oriental flavour, but encompass the realms of Fantasy and sweet, Make-Believe, so anything is possible here, ACEO's, ATC's, original paper dolls,Washi Dolls and three dimensional sculptures. Please do visit often for a few artistic surprises. I will enjoy the pleasure of your company. WELCOME to ZaaArt world of this wandering minstrel. Don't forget to visit my Victorian Blogspot ....
