Junker Jane

about Catherine Zacchino, a.k.a. Junker Jane

Nothing compares to childhood experiences, and it is from this that Catherine Zacchino pulls most of her ideas. As a child, she was always fascinated by anything otherworldly and supernatural, along with charming stories, such as Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter. These influences have stood with her into her adult years, and this contradiction shows itself in my work, as her dolls seem to hold one foot in innocence and another in the shadows.

Catherine lives in Portland Oregon. Her art consists of one of a kind soft sculpture art dolls, original paintings and prints made from her original works. Most of her dolls were made from single pieces of fabric — one for the front and one for the back. They have since evolved into more detailed works, including pieces that have been stained for an aged effect. She has always used recycled fabrics, a huge inspirations for her — they even inspired her business name, Junker Jane.
