The Mystic Asylum is a collector of antiques, intrigued by the notion of where they came from, who made them and who played with them. Her work is a fusion of her love of texture, color, timeless elements, and the natural world that are laced with clandestine symbolism. She creates her dolls with a real, sense of emotion to them. She uses a lot of layers of faux dirt to built-up on the idea that they are old and weathered. As they come alive, each doll reveals their unique personality. They exist in their own realm and time, and each piece offers a glimpse into their esoteric world. They are often haunted by ghosts of lost children, abandoned and left behind, living in trunks of damp foggy basements and attics awaiting their future.
