Soft Sculptures Hand-Painted to Look Like Creatures from Fairy-Tale World

"Buttons and patches and the cold wind blowing, The days pass quickly when I am sewing'' are few of the lines from the artist Zena Ladd's profile. I truly think the quote explains her love and dedication for her work, also the fun that she has while creating the imaginative creatures.

Zena Ladd is a textile artist based in UK who creates whimsical art dolls and soft sculptures. She is a mixed media artist whose work is inspired by natural history and fairy-tales. She uses needle, paint, and vintage fabric and laces to hand-make these one-of-a-kind pieces. Every sculpture is hand-sewn and hand painted by the artist before it's fixed on a wooden base ready to be cherished for a very long time! You can find owls, hares, swans and other characters in her online store - The Spare Bedroom.
