I was inspired by Gustav Klimt's "The Kiss". His use of gold leaf and patterns is so very beautiful. He had an ugly life to some and yet he was able to create some powerful works of art. He inspired the Art Nouveau style. He became one of the world's greatest decorative artists. He was born just outside Vienna in 1862 and was the oldest of seven children. He used semi-precious stones, gold leaf and enamels in his art. He died in 1918 at age 56. It is said that he had many lovers and fathered at least 14 children.
My "Kiss from Klimt" is made from polymer clay and is sealed and painted using acrylics. Her hair is braided clay. I used fine ribbon and bead spacers to attach her arms and legs. I used crystal beads for buttons on her shoes. She is one of a kind and available to purchase. Feel free to email me if interested in any of my work.
