Dominique Lavigueur likes to make people smile with her polymer clay art. She sent in a lovely fan letter and as I clicked through to her site, I had to beam.
“I hope you will sense the pleasure I have in creating my art,” she says. How could one not smile at the picture of Dominique holding a giant grinning polymer clay sun?
She lives in remote Quebec along the St. Laurence. Her wind-blown islands (shown here) are built on natural beach stones. It’s a charming scene and is paired with other offbeat figures that have interesting stories to tell.
Making people smile is an admirable artistic pursuit that she does well. Take a look.
