I have been working hard on my craft since 2004, and I think I have a skill level that shows in my work. I am the do over queen and there are many heads without bodies to suggest that these mistakes drive me to the perfect end. The finished doll always seems to lead to the next doll, one is born out of another. This is why I love making dolls. It is the air I breathe and pretty much defines me. I am a doll maker.

This may sound strange but these bodiless heads and headless bodies speak to me. I have control over the parts and pieces individually, but the position involved in the connection is revealed at the moment the pieces touch one another for the first time. The head moves me to sew it in a certain pose, same with the hands and arms. The whole doll forms itself to be expressive according to its idea of itself.

My newest collector just received her doll, and I am so happy that my creation is in her loving care. Please take a look at this blog.

I have almost finished the latest doll and already have a new head for another one. I found some crazy retro fabric at the thrift store yesterday that I think I will make her dress from. I have an idea for the hair but it is always about the execution. Sometimes the hair can't be controlled or forced. Just like mine.
