About Me

Don't these two look as soft as the real thing?  While mediums such as sculpture and photography do provide the opportunity to create exactitude in visual likenesses, I have a fondness for textile art. It's used in creating things that are a comfort to body and mind (here's a great example from a previous post).  Even when the art is purely decorative, the tactile response remains, which is a fancy way of saying "I want to pet that."  And I want to pet these two portraits commissioned from Sharon of Leicester, England.  At BoxRoomBazaar, her Etsy shop, Sharon offers not only many sweet animal works for anyone's delight, but a cheerful take on your own pet if you like.
