I never really grew out of playing with dolls. When I discovered art dolls, I soon realized that this was the perfect outlet for my creativity. Making dolls combines my love for sewing and painting with the joy of creating new characters, each with their own life and story. I started out by creating dolls based on my favorite folk and fairy tales, but soon expanded to creating dolls inspired by all of my favorite stories – of which there are many!

Doll making is one of the oldest art forms, first used by early tribes to accompany their story-telling rituals. By making dolls based upon the classic stories of my own time, I feel a connection to this long tradition.

Each of my art dolls is one of a kind and entirely hand sculpted and stitched from my own pattern, painted with oil or watercolors, and brought to life with tiny handstitched outfits and carefully crafted accessories. Whenever possible, I love incorporating old and found objects such as antique buttons, keys, trimmings, and doll shoes into my work. There’s a certain magic in old things with a history and story, and I feel that this history contributes to the stories that make my dolls unique.
