People Creating Magic: Alexandra Soury


There is a girl that gives life to people from the fairyland! She is such a sweet person, you could think she is a fairy herself! She is very creative, with admirable imagination! She combines elegance, purity and darkness in the most wonderful way! I'm very happy to announce a new series of posts, called "People Creating Magic" and I'm thrilled that the curtains open with such an amazing artist!
Everyone, meet Alexandra from France! The wizard of "Cute Amalia".

I find my inspiration in all details around me: Nature, illustrations, photographs, (Pinterest is a great site to find the details that will trigger inspiration) some movies especially those of Tim Burton, I really appreciate the illustrations from antique books for children (specifically Alice in Wonderland) , the storybooks and legends.
I can't give a clear explanation, the ideas come suddenly and I draw quickly on a sketch book not to forget.

I use air dry clay, cold porcelain (to do accessories ) ,needle felt, laces and acrylic paintings .

5. What was the first thing you ever made?

When I was a child ,when I got to eat at my grandmother for lunch, I was playing with plasticine and I created a lot of small animals, no bigger than a fingertip, I loved making swans and lizards! I also drew all the time!
