INDIGO'S FRIENDS  
on exhibit at the FOHTA Gallery
until December 31, 2018 
"The Power In Your Hands"

Imani W. Russell, creator of Indigo's Friends Art Dolls and notions and owner of Indigo's Friends Studio in Brentwood, Maryland. I consider myself a maker, designer, and fiber artist. I am largely self-taught but my influences emanate from the talents of my creative mother and maternal grandma. Both created hand stitched utilitarian quilts and other wonderful things from worn clothing, found fabrics, and unusual objects.  

I created Indigo's Friends cloth dolls in the early 1990's. The passing of a dear friend and the fascination with a character in an extraordinary novel I read in the late 1980s, "Sassafras, Cypress, and Indigo" was the inspiration for my creations. This fictional story still informs my work. Indigo was (and remains) my muse.
