This is one adorable Foomi, and as Tasha describes: “For the show, I put together a 7” Foomi named “Olive“. Little olive branches for Peace and all :)
My significant other is training to be a paramedic, and his drive and passion to make a difference helping people in need underpinned some of my artistic inspiration. Along with our mutual love for hedgehogs haha. So the subject matter is close to me. She’s got little patches sewn on her- stitching and sewing things together has very medical connotations for me. And while Olive is cuter and lighter- not full of holes or disambiguating, I couldn’t help but want to do something a little weird or off…considering she’s not a stuffed animal, but gets sewn up anyways, haha.”
Some of the other participating artists are: JC Rivera, Task One, Uncle, Jay222, Angry Woebots, and Ardabus Rubber.
