Artist: Katie Gardenia
Hand sculpted fantasy art dolls, whimsical, magical & endearing mermaids, fairies & mystical folklore people, bags, pillows & adornments...Katie Gardenia was born in 1943, in her grandmother's restaurant kitchen. Inspired by her grandmother's encouragement, she began sculpting at the age of nine.
Her imaginative spirit lives in her whimsical enchanting fantasy sculptures. With a passion, she has created well over two thousand individual figures of art that have found their way into collectors' homes worldwide. These fantasy figures have an old world look about them, as if they had recently sauntered out of a story book illustration and are happy to be free. They possess a magical quality that touches the viewers heart and reawakens the joy and the spirit within. Each sculpture takes on a unique personality and presence emerging from its environment. Drawing upon her rich imagination, she creates lavish costumes combining the old with the new.
Katie believes we all live in a creative magical world, when in fact a fantasy world lives within Katie.
