"The original piece was created in oils back in 2015. I’m a miniaturist, so working small (normally just a few inches) is how I usually paint, but this piece was a completely new challenge! It has over 250 characters and EACH one is a real toy. I had nearly 40 hours of reference research in this piece before I even picked up a brush! I asked my fans to send me images of their favorite toys, so many of the characters in this piece have their own secret stories behind them. It’s like we all created this piece together and I adored the richness of all the love and memories each character brought to the piece. The idea for the Dolly Collector was just a completely wild, random inspiration, but after I got about 100 hours of painting in I realized I was in trouble – I had only completed about 2 square inches! I bit off WAY more than I realized in tackling such a complex piece. The final painting took hundreds of hours. " - Mab Graves
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
is a Contemporary Pop-Surrealist artist and illustrator living and painting in a converted 1800’s tavern in a small corner of the dusty American Midwest.
A self-taught artist, her work is inspired deeply by fairy tales and old classic literature. She adores narrative. She blames this on her parents who unrelentingly read aloud to her and her three sisters as small, impressionable children.
Mab’s passion for creation has been an overwhelming obsession since she could grip a crayon, at about the age of 6 months. She spent her childhood and teen years adoring graphite and pen mediums (but being very suspicious of paints) until she discovered painting in early 2009, and then it was all over. She currently lives, works and dreams in Indianapolis, IN.
