3D Mixed Media Artwork by Doris Gilden

 

 

Doris Gilden’s background in Fashion Design and Interior Design inspires her to bring her creative skills to her passion for working on Greenware, Bisque and Clay.  She brings fantasy to her one-of-a-kind creations, incorporating lace, beads, sequins, crystals, mirrors and other decorations to what she conceives to be her blank canvas.

Mixed Media Decorative Plate by Doris Gilden

 

 

Doris is inspired by past and present trends and fashion from the 1920’s to the future. She portrays from all backgrounds and she is always looking for new inspirations. Her works may make the perfect centerpiece around which an entire concept may evolve, or, they may be the ideal accessories that have the ability to unify the whole creative design.

 

Decorative Mixed Media Plate by Doris Gilden

 

 

 

Doris has exhibited her works at the Palm Beach International Art Show, the Kravis Center Gift Shop, and Sherry Frankel’s Menagerie on Worth Avenue. In addition, her works have appeared in the Paradise Gallery in Sarasota and the Noyes Museum in New Jersey.

Jen tells The Rickie Report, “Life is tough and full of negative truths. In my own life I have known poverty, instability and loss of loved ones. For me, making art fills up those dark places with light and love. My goal is to put some whimsy and light out into the world, a little of my heART.  I am inspired by the female face, by fashion, by flowing hair. I love color, and texture. My favorite artists include artists from history, such as Mucha, Klimt, Chagall, Kahlo, and Gruau. I’m also influenced by artists working today in a variety of genres, from the street art of Kailua, the altered books of Teesha Moore, the mixed media works of Sunny Carvalho, the textiles of Susan Sorrell and fashion illustrations.

Jennifer Love Gironda , “May 27, 2015”

 

 

 

“The faces I create are an ongoing narrative of the happenings of a contemporary, quirky woman who is not afraid to be happy, sad, serious or downright silly. I depict her in a variety of moods, with stretched out limbs so that she can handle her daily adventures with grace. I always opt for an exaggerated eye to maximize her expression, which is often a state of wonder at the world around her.  I explore this character through diverse styles and a variety of media within monthly themes, creating a new piece each day. Often times I will include hints of my own daily happenings, such as places I am visiting or people that I am around. While my work is spontaneous, the way in which I work- daily art within monthly themes, is very structured and organized, which gives me a sense of calm”.

Jen also has a side passion called  ‘Angel Dropping’. She leaves small angel paintings for people to find, often in places where she feel folks could really use an angel, like in the recovery or loss section of the book store. “The thought of people finding these angels, or looking at my art and it making them smile feels my heart with joy and love…I put that back into making more work”.

“I grew up in North Carolina, where I lived pretty much my whole life except for a year in San Diego, California (…moved there on a whim…that’s a good story, too!) My husband and I came to Florida in 2009 so he could pursue a doctoral degree from Florida Atlantic University. He was hired as a professor at Nova Southeastern.  My formal training is from the School of Art and Design at East Carolina University in Greenville, NC. I received my BFA and MAEd from ECU, focusing on not only Art Education but also Textile studio. I have training in drawing, painting, ceramics, metals, and of course fibers. I feel in love with textiles my sophomore year of college when I was hand weaving a small tapestry…this led me to take five studios of weaving and also studios in Surface Design. Screen Printing, dye-work and hand embellishment/beadwork are my favorite textiles techniques but I always go back to my first loves, drawing and painting”.

Since earning my Master’s degree in 2009 I took time to focus on my teaching. I earned my National Board Teacher Certification in 2010 and became a successful grant writer to get materials and offer enriching experiences to my students. I currently teach high school art…and I love it! I am a member of the Palm Beach Art Educator’s Association and have been active on the Board of Directors for the Florida Art Educator’s Association. I’m also a contributor for Art Hive Magazine, where I write an article called, ‘Artin’ with the Muse’ and also work with Social Media.   When I am not teaching or working, I am making art…ALWAYS making art.  Maya Angelou said it best, “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” I believe that whole-heartedly”.
