Featured Artist Showcase

Alise Baker of Chubby Bunny
Vancouver, WA

One of a kind and incredibly unique, we invite you to peruse our exclusive collection of works by fiber and paint artist, Alise Baker.

About the Artist

Alise creates magical animal-inspired fiber art using a technique she calls "Applique Painting" - a process she has been developing over many years.

Her incredible attention to detail along with the textures of the myriad fabrics she chooses results in some of the most captivating works depicting animals of all species, real and fantastic.

Starting with multiple hues of acrylic paint worked into faux fur, Alise sculpts her 3D forms, painting layers upon layers, and finishes by embellishing them with taxidermy eyes, vintage fabrics and found-frames that have been altered to match her vision for the piece.
