Self-Taught Textile Artist Paige Roberts of Fauna Lune

Paige Roberts is a textile artist who specializes in soft sculptures and music boxes. She is a self-taught artist based in Kingsland, GA who creates whimsical art dolls. She loves animals and one can see that in her work which primarily has animals as a main subject matter, she focuses on "bringing whimsical fauna to life".

It all started when Paige's daughter was born, she took it upon herself to make things for her nursery. Till this point she was only drawing but now she started to turn those drawings into soft sculptures. Her work is inspired by fairy tales, folklore, and period pieces. Her sculptures are constructed using vintage textile, linen lace and cotton gauze. She adds details by hand embroidering and watercolors. You can follow her for new work on Instagram and for the available pieces check her online store - Fauna Lune.
