Kelly Potts Martinez

jewelry and doll sculptor

Kelly Potts Martinez is an English jewelry and doll sculptor living on the edge of haunting, Mystical Dartmoor, Devon, UK. She was born and raised in Lancashire, in a landscape infused with dark folklore, Victorian Gothica and full of stunning Pre-Raphaelite art. She served an apprenticeship in fine jewelry design, master-pattern making for the jewelry industry, and antique jewelry reproduction. She has worked on such projects as sacred jewelry and ritual object restoration, and reproducing pieces for historic private collections and public exhibitions.

Kelly is also a sculptor of character sculpture dolls, always created with a nod to folklore, fairytales and weird nature. They are Kelly's way of bringing the fairy and folktales she loved as a child to life, reflecting her abiding love of vintage fairytale illustration. These sometimes quirky, always loveable dolls are testament to her previous work as a fantasy theatre, dance and independent film costume designer. All the elements of her craft from this are brought to intense miniaturised detail with these pieces, the emphasis on creating a narrative for each doll by using costume and hand-made or upcycled props to enhance the stories and tell their individual fairy tales.

Although looking to the past for inspiration and guidance from the great oil painters of the Northern Renaissance and the Romantic and Symbolist painters of the 19th century, he has picked watercolor as his medium of choice.

Having created illustrations for many publishers, including Simon & Schuster, Random House and Hyperion/Disney, Omar's primary market is geared towards children's and young adult's magazine and books, doing cover and interior illustrations. He has also illustrated several children's picture books.

Other genres he has worked in include the gaming market, most notably for Magic: The Gathering, where he has done card art and concept work. Omar was also among the talented artists who contributed concept art and created the look for the motion picture "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe."

In addition to his commercial work, Omar's most favorite body of work is not created for publishers, but just for show. Paintings of whim and fantasy made to indulge his own personal tastes and humors and to hopefully entertain and please the viewing public.
