As an artist, I believe in challenging oneself in order to grow. Hence, I take satisfaction in creating as many varied celebrities/characters as I can.

The dolls used are 16 inch and 17 inch Arwen and Aragorn dolls by Robert Tonner. Full facial repaint and shading as well as extensive hair style make over to replicate the features of Liv Tyler and Viggo Mortensen, particularly as seen in the epic Lord of the Rings.

Repaint is a new form of pop art, wherein the doll's face is treated like a three dimensional canvas, with the added challenge of painting within a very small area and an even greater challenge of recreating a real person's likeness. Since dolls are basically miniature pieces, brush strokes and shading have to be very controlled and precise.

-- acrylic paint and ultra fine brushes
