Names and personalities

dress-formDress forms are a fun form of creative expression.  You can try out new techniques and get as creative as you want.  It is a very basic form – a blank canvas if you will.  I do a dress form every year or so.  This one is a bit on the traditionally classic side and I gave her the name  of Anne.  Anne with an E.  Kind of like Anne from Green Gables.  She has a smart saucy side to her yet she is very conservative.  The first one that I made was a tramp.  Her name is Roxi.  She came complete with a tramp stamp and a belly button ring.  I will try to post a picture of her next.  Then they will be followed by one I made this past november.  She is more sophisticated and  chic.  I need to think of a nice name for her.  The forms I use are from Creative Imagination – their Bare Elements collection.  They also have a larger one too.

My website Bio- Growing up in a small mid-western town, Niki Meiners was surrounded by a modest, resourceful and very entrepreneurial family. Her simple upbringing spurred her "Can do" attitude and gave her the confidence to try any challenge placed before her. She knew there was more out there than just her small town and set off after high school to explore the world. It was through these travels that she discovered her love of art and her desire to make the world a prettier place. It was not until she suffered a paralyzing illness that she realized she wanted to reconsider her corporate career as a Chief Paper Pusher, and her thoughts immediately turned to her first passion, art. In 2003 she began an odyssey that would take her from product design to publication and everywhere in between. She is known for her distinctive, high quality creations that feature a diverse mix of styles and highly creative approach to even the smallest detail. Niki is an Idea Architect, easily outlining every project from concept to completion. Her creations are simultaneously beautiful and functional and her in depth knowledge of the industry allows her to produce projects with a specific understanding of both the consumers and the manufacturers. This knowledge has allowed her work to be featured in the industries leading craft and lifestyle publications and manufacturers’ websites. nikimeiners at
