Book of the week

Yesterday I got a lovely little book that features the work of Julie Arkell, a British mixed media artist who creates these funny, humorous and sort of naïve dolls, creatures and objects out of humble materials such as papier-mâché, fabric, yarn and haberdashery.

The book also offers you glimpses of Julie Arkell´s studio – where she as an inveterate collector of discarded toys, textiles and ephemera works with stuff that’s worn, torn, used and read. And as you can probably guess her shelves are a wonderful mixture of storage and display, a great source of inspiration!
