Joan Alen textile dolls - Trollops and Peacocks
"Create to have fun!" - this is the motto of artist Joan Alen.
Her works have a unique author's style, courage and fun! Each doll is accompanied by a short description where the author explains the character and habits of the character. Here is one of them: "Maybelle, flighty, independent, vague, drinks champagne through a straw." Interesting, isn't it!
Velda spends every day on her large, shady veranda. She is dressed in a patchwork of silk and lace that consists of the memories she has collected.
On the artist's website the dolls are gathered in the collection "Trollops and Peacocks", referring us to the world of bold and extraordinary women. To those women who love bright make-up and outfits. They always have their own opinion and do not go for a word in their pocket.....
Dolores, escapes the passage of time with bright red hair and all shades of eye shadow. Screaming is not a word she will tolerate.
