Turtle Rider

Bloody Circus

Toyz Out of the Box

Mixed Media Assemblage


9″H X 4″W X 5″D

In the Bloody Circus, the intrepid turtle conveys her rider in style.

This art piece is inspired by Hendrick’s Gin Ads and my childhood memories of drawings by Ida Rentoul Outhwaite.

The miniature vintage toy creatures in the Toyz Out of the Box series are lovingly wrapped in antique lace & textiles and outfitted with bones or teeth.

Mounted with tiny dolls, they offer their riders an opportunity to escape the mundane.
