Artist discovers her therapeutic form
YANDINA woman Paula Briggs is a "reborn" artist, which means she paints in 3D to create as real as possible a piece of artwork to resemble and feel like a real newborn baby.
Paula said she accidentally stumbled on to this form of art through her love of dolls and painting.
It has become a dream to be able to work full time on her passion.
Yes, she admits, they are a strange and unique piece of artwork.
Some people would might even find them creepy, but art is in the eye of the beholder.
While these babies are pieces of art to be admired, they are becoming a very useful sedative for the elderly and dementia patients, as well as calming those with depression and anxiety.
Each baby can take more than 50 hours to create, and Paula said she puts every bit of her heart and soul into each and every one of them.
If you haven't seen this art form before, Paula asks readers to visit facebook.com/boohooreborns and see for yourself the dedicated work that goes into these creations.
