First work of 2017!

Just completed this new work: Pride for Finders Keepers exhibition at Will’s Art Warehouse London, starting 7/1/17. Among the myriad plastic animals and dinosaurs, can you spot three Power Rangers, Woody from Toy Story, Laa-Laa from Tellytubbies, Homer Simpson and a wooden banana?!


Many thanks to all of you who helped solve the mystery of the spike in visitors to my website over New Year – it seems interest was sparked by the posting on Facebook of my Frida Kahlo portrait on a site called Folt Bolt – an amazing collection of art and images, linked by wonderful colour combinations. I particularly love the site header for the New Year – samples of images and patterns in one of my favourite colour combos – turquoise blue and bright red – beautiful!

      So lovely to hear from you – I loved the day we had together. Can’t believe Frida is receiving so much attention!

  5. Hi Jane, I love your work, how original ! A friend posted your Frida portrait to me, as I have just made a Frida muse. You may want to see, at
    I can imagine you must have a massive supply of buttons and trinkets, what a great way to ‘paint’ !
    I’m very impressed 😊

      Hi Marina
      I’ve just had a look at the link you sent – your work is amazing! Are they really dolls?
      I love the Frida Kahlo

      • Yes sort of, I prefer ‘muse’ as a name for them, they are made from cotton and Measure 75- 78cm. Each one is made individually from drawing the pattern, sewing the pieces, designing the dress to painting the face. It feels like a form of portraiture.
        Thanks for your interest,

    Sharing, for sure!!! This is INCREDIBLE!!!! Please edit your post and tell us more about what is in the piece–what you used to make it! The smiley face caught my eye and make me laugh, and I saw some buttons, straws? I’m not sure what else. I love to know the materials in a work. I always share that when I post a piece of my work. People want to know.

    Jane Perkins, I wish I knew you! Anyone who is this clever and creative and can make something so beautiful always captures my attention. I used to teach art and do quite a bit myself but just can’t get over how amazing this is! Kudos to you!
