childhood dresses

I just found this artist Jennifer Collier who makes these beautiful paper sculptures of children's shoes and dresses. They are so delicate and ethereal looking.

I did a series of encaustic dresses on wood several years ago. There's something so lovely about preserving childhood. A lot of people loose their childhood innocence and wonder and that is something I am trying desperately to hold on to for as long as I can. (I need to do some more encaustics soon!)
