Bobble head polymer

Renner's Bobble Heads

Texas’ Lisa Renner finds her seeds of inspiration in pods. This mixed media artist will be teaching a polymer pod head doll class in July at the Austin All Dolls Are Art conference. It’s based on an article she wrote for the Autumn 2011 Art Doll Quarterly magazine.

A second class will feature these polymer bobble head dolls with abstract pillow bead bodies. They bob and weave on their wire supports.

Renners Bird Peeps

The Bird Peeps are from another mixed media class. Check out her galleries to see all the textures and artforms she mixes into what she calls her visual poetry.

          I took Lisa’s pod head class last year. She’s a fun teacher. It was a great class. I think she’s the only person I know with a bigger collection of pods and “nature stuff” then me. Love to new version of the dolls.

            Hi Susan! I know- the collection grows and grows! Glad you like the dolls!
