A Marionette Maker

Tuesday, February 15, 2011

I met Jane some time ago at an art opening at Milk Studios. I was delighted to see her again two years later in front of The National Arts Club with one of her amazing marionettes. Jane taught herself how to make marionettes and, since 2000, has made them in the likeness of many celebrities including: Picasso, Andy Warhol, Frida Kahlo, Louis Armstrong,Doc Cheatham, Bobby Short, Bobby Pratt and Bernhardt Crystal. She has great style and spirit and I can't wait to meet up with her again.
