I scour the antiques markets looking for the fun and collectable St. Nicks and Santas, and try to adapt their looks and charm for my holiday creations, only not so fragile - and affordable. The mache items are all hand-molded, no two turn out alike, as the process takes several drying days. The candy containers are molded over cardboard cylinders. Some of my Santas are "doing" things - riding a bear, maybe a chicken, whatever....They make people happy!
I am a retired Real Estate Broker - no formal art training, a self-taught folk artist. After retirement, my husband and I worked with primitive antiques, buying from local estates and selling at antique shows - specializing in folk art. I started making some primitive soft sculpture santas - paper mache faces, old raggedy quilt pieces for coats. I found that my work was being accepted, as I sold everything I made. My work all evolves around Christmas.
