The story of Lady Clementine

Sometimes and idea will sleep on my mind so deeply that not even I know it's there. One day, it wakes and it commands me to bring it into our world.

And it may take more than one try to execute it to perfection.

About me

Danita

Lover of rainy days. Doll maker. Painter. Creator of beauty.

I am an artist, and art is my life.

To me, creation is not a choice, but an imperative from the inscrutable exhortations from my soul.

I must create to feel alive, and to let my mind flow in peace, exploring every corner of the worlds I create.

Everything I create is inspired by my personal experiences and memories, my emotions and moods will always shape the things I paint and the art dolls I create.

I chose mixed media, watercolors and hand sculpted art dolls to express my emotions.

I only paint females, concentrating on expressing emotions and feelings trough colors and shapes without much thought on how realistic they should be.

On my paintings and my dolls everything is dreamy, surreal and whimsical. Everything except for the eyes. The eyes are the window to the soul, and I really express myself trough the eyes of my creations. Their sadness, sorrow, anger and joy are instantly recognizable, and you can feel the emotions I felt when I was in the process of creation pouring out of them.
