Hello everyone 😊
In 2013, my daughter and I travelled to Turkey for a weeks break. Whilst there, I popped into a lovely working sculpture gallery run by an artist who created the most incredible sculptures using just about everything he could find from his local beach.
I came home full of inspiration, so I went on the hunt for some driftwood and came up with this fiah sculpture. I used a bended mental coat hanger and chicken wire for the frame, then binded rough string around it. The eye was made using a washer and hand rolled clay balls, as is the balls on the body. I added shells onto the driftwood tail. It was great fun to make and I really enjoyed the process!
Commissions are always welcome. Please visit my instagram page Heidi Hawkins Art ( I also have facebook, Pinterest and Twitter pages of the same name) to browse the images. If you like what you see, I’d so very much appreciate a like, comment or share as the algorithms will then work their magic and get me more noticed and therefore, hopefully, generate commissions for me.
I absolutely LOVE with a passion what I do. My up and coming therapy business went down hill to nothing with the onset of Covid and the lockdown. I desperately miss giving healing therapy such as Reiki and massage, but my artistic talent has become my saviour, for sure. Not financially just yet, but mentally, most definitely. I also do people portraits so you dont have to have a furry friend to commission me. I understand the desperate situation people are now in financially but I dont want that to stop anyone from accessing my art, so I am perfectly happy to offer payment plans.
Have a great day and thank you for taking the time to check out my post. 😊
