strange creatures

Gillian Bencke makes crazy dolls and brooches with mysterious stories attached.

I love these... they pique my interest.

She uses scraps of vintage fabric and buttons linking the homely art of sewing to a weird and wonderful world of crazy princesses, harassed mummy's and odd, beautiful , lonely, happy people. It's like her dolls are the twisted strange true selves we all hide from the world.
