Nights & Weekends: Mother Idolization

Custom Barbie Birthday (for Mom!)

A Birthday present I made for my wonderful mother, Paula. She instilled me with a lifelong love of dolls, fashion, beauty, and creation; so I decided to create a Barbie portrait of her in the image of her modeling days in her 20's. I always pined over the series of black and white photos from the 70's that she took with a photographer friend; always sure she was (and is) the most beautiful woman in the world. Perhaps making a little idol of her might help her realize it! 

This is my mother around age 25. The photographs are from the short series in her portfolio.
