My life masks were inspired by the work of a Canadian artist, Miya Turnbull. She creates wonderful life like masks using paper mache. She was generous with her encouragement and advice and I was intrigued and inspired. Plaster of Paris casting was new to me and definitely a challenge. Note that my mask below with the green stitching is embroidered gauze over the plaster cast of my face. I look forward to playing with this idea more in the future.
