From the Closet of Broken Dolls by 

Inspired by the poem of the same name by Christie Moses

The poem just wouldn’t let me go… going round and round in my head until I did something about it. LOL This is what came to me. I just followed my inner voice….

I am a very creative person and it’s my way of dealing with the world, inside and out. I am only happy when I am making things or painting or writing. There are just not enough hours in the day…. I am into poetry and photo manipulation at the moment and also dabbling in photography. :-)

    What a phenomenal and evocative image Syb and an amazing interpretation of Christie’s powerfully moving poem. Brilliant collaboration here – and your work, as always, just so brilliantly done. xox

  • Thank you so much Lianne. I totally went with the flow with this one – and had no preconceived idea of what I’d do when I began. It just fell into place as I selected the main parts of the image. And I am so relieved it worked out. LOL Hope you’re well. xoxoxo
