Maquette for a painting. (I’m enjoying the reference photos of these objects enough that I think I’m going to start shooting them with a proper camera...) #portlandartist #portlandart #pdxartist #pdxart.
Making self-portraits has been a transformative practice that’s carried me through the last 10 years. I perform, pose & paint for myself & for you. These WIP paintings will be on my website soon! ✨🙏🏼✨

Ok. There should be music. Or the sound of the wind rustling the leaves on the tiny trees. But take a little tour of my current work in progress, and use your imagination. 😉

Dang it feels good to paint from a live model. Could have gone twice as big and four times longer on the pose, but am happy with this #allaprima 8x10” is about all I was capable for the 3 hour session. We had New Orleans Jazz playin and the sexy @mz_bleu to inspire a fun painting! #pearls #figurepainting #artisticnude #artmodel #whitegloves #vintage #portlandartist #nudeart #oilpainting #oilsketch #paintingfromlife #stringofpearls #brookepaints #figureart

It’s been awhile since I’ve played with my Polychromos colored pencils, and even longer since I’ve worked while at my favorite coffee spot, @solace.fineespresso - I forgot how much I love it!

Love this pdx artist's, Jessie Dean's, work. His art toys and sculptures are fantastic, Especially his handmade polymer clay pieces! Art toy creator: @slimearchetype Featured in this photo is his art toy "Cosmic King". His craft inspires my writing.

Sometime ago, I stumbled on a video about how decorating walkers helps seniors. So last week I shopped for "bling" and today I decorated my husband's grandma's walker. If nothing else, she got two visits; but hopefully that green ribbon and sparkly tape reminds her she is loved and that spring is coming. I also brought over a pretty bulletin board and will make her a little watercolor for it this week. 👵🏻💚👒PS I kind of want to decorate all the walkers in her building now. Wouldn't that be fun? #jnshowsup

Working on some photography today! I moved in late October of last year, and it took a while to find the ideal new place for my light box and photography equipment. But I think that this is it!

Yarn I couldn’t say no to today includes these beauties from @sockobsessionyarns. AND the most fantastic little T-Rex stitch marker. Super excited to turn these bad boys into something amazing!

Portland artist coffee shop moments 😄
The little pouch is something I made from scrap fabric and an old belt. Pencil, pen, sketchbook and watercolors are always kept inside, ready to grab on the go!

Hi guys! I'm Kori, and I make dolls. ❤️ It's been awhile since I showed the face behind the brand. So here's a few fun facts about me! I am the designer and maker of all Dreadful Stitch dolls. My shop was born a little over a year ago after making my daughter a Coraline doll for Christmas and falling in love with the craft. I have two babies that fuel my inspiration every day. My 3 year old daughter and 20 month old son. I am a coffee addict and almost never leave the house without grabbing a latte. 💀 I love all things with skulls. 💀 Halloween is when I do my home decor shopping. 🤣 My office is my happy place. Especially when it's rainy with good music on. That's when I create some of my favorite dolls. I am originally from Southern California, but we moved to the Portland area about 4 years ago and love it! I'm extremely shy and like to stay at home away from people lol. But I venture out often so my kids don't pick up my bad homebody habits. 🤣 Right before starting The Dreadful Stitch I was going to start school to be pre-school or kindergarten teacher. I love working with kids! But I love getting to work from home while being creative, and being with my babies all day. ❤️❤️❤️ Starting this shop has been one of the best decisions I ever made. You guys continue to show your support and love for my shop every day. And I couldn't be more thankful. I love all of the amazing photos of your littles loving on their new dolls and seeing all of the adventures you guys take them on. ❤️❤️ I have some amazing things planned for this year! Keep an eye out for updates and announcements of new things! 🖤🖤 Starting with my first sale of the year. 
Take 20% off for the next 24hours with code "justforfun20" 🖤🖤

Getting back into French Existentialist literature and practicing my French while practicing my lettering and playing with my new @molotowheadquarters masking pen. Relearning, once again, what it means for me to be a thing in this world. Sometimes, it takes just being, first, to be able to start to sort it out. C'est simple. .

Making a fun lil birthday quilt for my mom with a bundle of strip fabrics that I bought forever ago as a "stash builder" and then promptly forgot about, placed in a drawer, and never touched again 🙄#wip

Behind every good song, there's an untold story & where words fail, music speaks. Over the past few years I have experienced SO MUCH growth... pain... transition... and finally: HEALING! (Yay!) And I have stories now to tell -- really painful, redemptive, and powerful ones... These past memories are becoming songs and melodies now. I'm writing with more transparency, confidence, and vulnerability than ever before. During the dark times, it would sting when people would say, "Don't worry, I know something good will come out of your hardship." I was like, "mmk, yeah right" ... I could not imagine a time when happiness could be possible... BUT -- I'm finally seeing the "something good", finally!!! -- and it's happening through music & songwriting.  I probably won't release all the stuff I'm writing... because some of it is too personal!! 🤐 But have you ever let artistic expression tell your story? Have you ever been able to heal through just creating or writing something? Have you ever felt "healing" when you've channeled your untold story into an artistic expression? (Journaling, painting, dancing, singing in the shower at the top of your lungs...) My therapy (in addition to going to therapy💁🏼 amen, amen) is songwriting ... What's yours? I can honestly say, it's done wonders for me and my ability to be my authentic self and extend love and compassion to others... What about you? Have you found peace or healing in creative expression?
