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.

A Sneak Peak



I couldn't help myself, I have to post something.................My friend never checks the blog out anyway.................I don't think..........................

I'm not really showing too much, but I thought they were so cute at this beginning stage, the point where they start telling me who they want to be. Can't wait to finish. Very close.

These two cuties have a story to tell. You can see it in their eyes. Will they tell? Hmmm...
Can't wait to see them completed.
