Above is OOAK Art doll “Meadow Fae” by Artist Kathy Davis, which I discovered in my daily search for beautiful OOAK art dolls. I love this doll for several reasons. One is because it is simple but beautiful. The appeal of this doll is in her expression. By tilting her head up, open wide-eyed look with those beautiful blue eyes, the chubby “smiling” cheeks, and the slightly tipped-up lips, her expression shows innocence and joy.
The pose is simple and the scale is perfect. Her outfit appears to be made of moss, silk leaves and tiny flowers. I especially like the off-the-shoulder neckline, which adds to the pixie-ish look of the fairy.
Her wings are definitely handmade and I cannot tell how they are done, but they are in scale with her outfit and they are “casual” in their appearance, which adds to but doesn’t overwhelm the focal point of the doll, which is her facial expression.
Her wreath of flowers in her hair and the casual tendrils falling down in uneven lengths, to me, shows the artist flair of the artist, Kathy Davis, and her own eye for artistic design.
