Ann Hord-Heatherley, figurative art at Out In Jupiter Farm
I make realistic cloth figures. I hand-dye most of my fabrics, but I also may use pieces of old curtains, handkerchiefs or vintage lace. Mohair locks from my angora goats is used for hair. Much of my inspiration comes from old photographs of the women of Appalachia and the rural South. My goal is to give each figure a "soul" and to capture emotion in cloth.
