“Better to do something imperfectly than to do nothing flawlessly.” ~Robert H Schuller


People this week have been messaging me saying something that makes me sad. They tell me they ‘don’t deserve’ the complements I give them because my work is ‘better’. After talking to a few I have found that they are afraid to upload their work because its not ‘good’ enough and no one will like it.  

 Not so long ago I felt the same. When I started learning to dabble in crafts I was affraid if I showed others my work they would think it awful - ugly.
I started out just watching and admiring other artist on Deviantart until one day I just did it, I took the plunge and uploaded my first works for the world to see. My artwork got a mix of positive and negative comments. Negative or lets say poorly worded feedback can be very hard to deal with and understand but in many ways I learnt the most from them, i learnt where I need to improve. I have learnt to use any less than positive feedback as constructive criticism to become better and to be truly thankful for positive feedback. 

 The way I see it, there is ALWAYS someone you will consider to be ‘better’ than you, but that’s fine. Don’t be discouraged, be inspired by their work!
I look at other artists breathtaking work every day and I walk away wanting to learn more, to be more. So don’t just sit there doing nothing because of your lack of confidence. Don’t let your work go to waste.

 Upload you work! If you like it, if YOU are happy with it then its PERFECT! And don’t let anyone tell you otherwise!!!

 Don’t forget, hard work and believing in yourself can get you anywhere!

Commission information:


(if you would like to discus a commission please contact me via a NOTE)


Prices start at $260au plus postage and average at around $300au plus postage for something the size of a cat.

Prices are given depending on what you want, how complicated it is, how much time is involved creating it – things like feathered wings and poseable jaws cost $80au - $100au extra. Size only slightly affects the price, I avoid make anything bigger than a cat as postage costs go up dramatically (but that’s up to you) and I try not to go really small as you lose detail. 

I accept long term payment plans and one off payments – whatever works best for you. Some people do weekly or monthly installments some people pay in one shot. Once the full agreed amount has been paid I post the art doll to you. 
I try to only take payments through Paypal as they offer protection for both buyer and seller. In terms of buyer protection paypal will refund you (the buyer) if you don’t receive your item or the item is “significantly not as described”. This ensures you are protected and I am not some naughty scam artist. I find it is also an easy way to keep track of payments. 

When you confirm you would like a commission made you will go onto the waiting list. These will be made in an orderly fashion starting at the first person to place an order. With one exception, people who have paid in full will have priority over those who are still paying via a payment plan.

I can give you shipping quotes but need to know what country you live in (or want it posted too).

My Life Update:



I am sorry for my slow responses this week I have been traveling interstate working on a personal art project that I will hopefully be able to discuss with you all at a later date.
I am currently concentrating on creating a cat commission with posable jaw, I made it a couple of weeks ago but I am no longer happy with it so time to start from scratch. 

I am spending my spare time gradually shipping my kickstarter creatures and key-rings to my beautiful backers whilst trying to create enough soft sculptures to fill an art table for supanava in April and keep up with commissions.
 

My art mission for this year:
Grow as an artist: I would like to explore new mediums and improve my current skills.
Be a better person: I would like to be a good example and helpful resource for others.
Fill the world with art: I want to increase my sharing of other artists and art that have inspired me.

I would LOVE to have my work displayed somewhere but that's a dream I might keep for 2016 or 2017.

I am just a small girl with big dreams.

I’m a fully self taught soft sculpture artist. I specialize in creatures that can be posed into various positions taking on a life of their own.
As I only started teaching myself how to make them a few months ago (beginning of 2014), I have so much wonderful learning ahead of me!

It is my dream to one day make art my career and I know it is a silly big dream but if you're going to dream, why not dream big

Keep an eye out at my Esty page for creature sales : www.etsy.com/au/shop/LittleMissWoolfsART
And enjoy the art on my new exciting Facebook page: www.facebook.com/RhiannonWoolf

I have worked in hand done unique items before and I know the time & effort you put into these. [Not to mention the creative side of the coin & the nagging question of how well your vision will stand up under your own execution...it's good to see someone doing this kind of work. Mythical beasties are a passion of mine[wishing I could find a University that would let me do a degree in Xeno-Biology] still firmly planted here in Mundania though.
 Very nice work. I thought your Griffin was quite charming.

A ferret cat might be a cool idea, otherwise, how much are your "pets" usually
