With my new collection AMULETS II : SHE'S MY WITCH
& with All Hallow's Eve eeking ever nearer, it seems a perfect time to introduce you to the stars of the SHE’S MY WITCH movie - the four beautiful faces of ‘MY WITCH’, & the magical talents that lie beneath...
SERPENT CHARMER WITCH : MISS RAISA VEIKKOLA
I had the great fortune to meet Raisa some moons ago when we studied Illustration together at the University of the Arts in South London, & was delighted when she agreed to model for the collection.
If you are very lucky, you might recognise Raisa from one her many performances in Theatre of Dolls - her joint creation with fellow artist Frida Alvinzi. Together they create magical puppet shows, where they themselves form part of the show, with their magnificent costumes acting as a backdrop for their beautifully handcrafted characters to tell fantastical tales.
If you’ve not yet had this pleasure, fret not - they are currently cooking up the next chapter, ready for release next year. In the meantime, you can get an taste of things to come from their glorious archive http://www.theatreofdolls.com/productions/the-holy-dress.
Theatre of Dolls also spin a fine line in illustration, working on a range of commissions, from posters to murals. Contact them here :
