CHUNKIE Calendar Series One now available

Chunkies are a new series of figurines I am working on ..

CHUNKIE Birthday Fairy


CHUNKIE Lotus Love on Golden Pond


CHUNKIE Sunshine







CHUNKIE Ballerina



CHUNKIE Hula girl
CHUNKIES in love

CHUNKIE Lollipop Lover





CHUNKIE Tooth Fairy
Next in line is CHUNKIE Elephant ….Originally the elephant was deep purple but it looked all wrong, so I’ve muted the colours and added embellishments, he/she would make a lovely valentines day, friendship, wedding, engagement, anniversary, or welcome baby card now….am very happy with how this little one turned out for me….the beads are embedded in the clay around the ears and the flower is from the next door neighbours garden, it was originally bright orange in colour. I created the other little embellishments/love heart framing the elephant in photoshop. CHUNKIE Elephant is bearing a bunch of flowers in his/her trunk, she always brings gifts to her friends….

Once the Chunkies are created and photographed, I usually dismantle them to be used in the creation of more chunkies, so I am recycling the plasticine. These Chunkies have been very therapeutic to create over the holidays, whilst taking a break from red bubble and having my family around. I have many more to come, and although I won’t be on RB as much, I hope to also be doing some serious painting this year…so i look forward 2009 with much anticipation …

    Wow…wow…wow…absolutely wonderful… I’m running out of adjectives to give for your work that I adore!!
    perfect for an engagement or wedding. (symbol of the strength of love and union).
    You should be submitting the chunkies to the large card companies… like John Sands??

  • hehe…thank you so much Pip, i just love your enthusiasm :) it makes me giggle a LOT…can submit them to my agent in the states, and then she submits them to people like that….i must organise to have these sent to her by file protocol asap….i might wait til they’re all uploaded to RB first tho Pip :) xxxx

    are you finding them relaxing and enjoyable to make? Do you think you still prefer to paint?

  • oh yes…i do find them enjoyable, and time passes so quickly too….but i feel this sense of guilt that i’m really meant to be painting…i want to set goals this year to paint again…i’d like to complete 6 big works, and i think i’d be really happy with that effort….but i’ll be doing little else if I’m doing the painting…so i won’t be uploading works regularly to RB…just commenting a lot on others works and upload one big painting perhaps every 1-2 months – we’ll just see how it all shapes up i guess :) xx
