Karen Preston expresses her "joy of life" through the creation and embellishment of "Karen's Krazy Kats." Each is an individual creation from one of her "Krazy Kat" patterns.Each cat is named and no two are identical.
Each of the "N'Zinga" pattern cats is constructed of multiple fabrics, sometimes including pieces from as many as 30 different fabrics. The arms and legs are jointed with a variety of beads or buttons; the "hair" is created from any number of materials -- yarn, ribbon, angelina, metalic threads, etc. The "jewelry" is created from a variety of materials. All of the embellishments are individually selected and are attached by hand.
The facial characteristics are individually designed and hand painted; wire, raffia or other materials are the whiskers and "people" eyelashes help develop the personality.
And the tails -- each Kat has a loooong tail that curls around to add to their character. The tails are always made of multiple fabrics usually with a specific design at the end.
All of the dolls are signed by the artist.
N'Zinga is created of fabrics that represent grey leopard spots. Her jewelry features real sea shells. She has appeared in several magazines including Quilting Arts, Art Doll, and Cloth Paper Scissors.
She was created by Karen L Preston. $400.00 includes domestic shipping
