“Hermit Mermaid” by Borbala Arvai
Borbala Arvai’s “Hermit Mermaid” on display at the Buenaventura Art Association Gallery at the corner of Santa Clara and Fir across from Plaza Park and the post office.
Astonishingly detailed, for Borbala’s “Hermit Mermaid,” she used felt and other natural materials. In addition to a variety of felted people, she’s illustrated a version of “Snow White and the Seven Dwarves” aka “Blanca Nieves y Los Siete Enanitos.”
Borbala has a number of other felt projects going including another book project as well as felting fairy dolls for Danika Dinsmore’s novel Brigitta of the White Forest which is coming out in March 2010 from en theos press. Borbala also accepts commissions.
