The Mist Weavers Realm
About the
Artist
My name is Debbie Richard, I have enjoyed many hobbies through the years.  In the 1970's I  crafted sterling silver jewelry, then in the 1980's I
found that I enjoyed making soft sculpture art dolls. When I was involved in the soft sculpture field I used to sell my creations at such arenas as
Nassau Coliseum and the Renaissance Fair, in New York, and also taught a few classes at a local craft shop. After a few years of doing craft
shows,the demands of a growing family took all my time. I decided to leave the arts & crafts field and returned to working part time as a
hairdresser and as a floral designer.  After my children grew up I enjoyed Oil Painting and Airbrushing. In between these two mediums I found
that I also enjoyed stain glass design. I never tried to sculpt with polymer .One day while browsing ebay I came across the ooak babies and
thought that I would like to try to make one. I have only been working with clay since August of 2004, I love creating mystical creatures  and
realistic fairies. I have realized that this is a hard  medium to work with, it  takes time and practice. I don't use molds or prefabricated designs of
any kind.In July of 2005 I was awarded second place in the beginners category of the Prosculpt Scholarship contest for my sculpture titled
Samirah. Every  one of my sculptures are original .
