Love from Turkey!
My dear friend and sister, Firuzan, has made me an amazing gift which I received in the mail today! It is a gorgeous "paper doll" of me! It is made from paper mache and found objects and painted in rich jewel tones. I absolutely love it!
I met Firuzan through Flickr-we connected over the artist dolls that we both make and found that we have a lot in common. Over the last year, we have bonded and she truly feels like a sister to me. I treasure our friendship. It is truly a gift. It is amazing how people come into our lives.
Firuzan also makes gorgeous paper mache jewelry and life size sculptures that are beyond amazing. A dream of mine would be to visit her studio on the coast of Turkey and to meet her and her 2 lovely daughters!
