Iva Wilcox makes holiday-inspired spun cotton figures and ornaments that look like a well-loved treasure. When the mood strikes, she also creates an eclectic mix of other art that may include paper mache, watercolors and mixed media. Her paintings are often depicting autumn scenes and the enchantment of Halloween. Her sculptural art celebrates the whimsy in holidays. She strives to make each piece one-of-a-kind by often incorporating antique and vintage embellishments. Follow her on Instagram to see works-in-progess and the latest coming from her studio.
