The Pale Rook

ErinThe Pale Rook is the blog of Johanna Flanagan, fashion and textiles lecturer, historical costumier and doll maker.

I can’t pretend. I don’t like dolls. Never have. But Johanna’s creations are things of beauty. Quirky rather than cute. Each has their own character.  I like how she presents them – her photographs gives them their own life.

Her blog  makes an interesting read too, particularly the posts on being an artist in a commercial world and learning to value oneself and one’s work when others don’t.
