do you believe


Do you believe in Monsters? Hmmm..seems like Valerie Weberpal surely does!

This is a peek at her newest creations -- her second series of one of a kind monsters -- and they are fabulously funky and not so scary. These first appeared on the scene last spring in full color and in her classic pillow-like forms. At about 22" they are made from found, recycled and re-purposed textiles and trims -- she never uses a pattern. And yet again, the artists are on the leading edge of style and trend...

Maurice Sendak's monstrously famous, classic children's book "Where the Wild Things Are" will be released as a major motion picture later this month...get ready!


In the meantime, I'll be choosing some of my own monsters to move into my house. I am thinking, Valerie's monster creations might look wonderful on each of my boys' beds and they just might scare away the nightmares too!

More pics of her work via email if you'd like to see the rest of the wild things she's just sewn...
