Voodoolls, Furry Monsters and Embroidered Hearts, Bugs & Brains

furry-monster.jpgToday my weekly Grand Rapids Press art & craft column is about fiber artist Heather Weathers, 25, of Grand Rapids. Her booth was one of the highlights of the Eastown Street Fair back in September.

She makes the cutest hand-painted voodoo dolls she calls voodoolls, stuffed monsters and impressive hand-embroidered pillows and wall art. A fan of human anatomy, hearts, brains and cells are frequent subjects of her work along with beetles and butterflies. Heather hand-paints much of her fabric with acrylic paints to achieve lovely color combinations.

I was really inspired by Heather’s creative journey and I hope you are, too. Here’s a look at some of Heather’s art. Enjoy!
