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 Very Tight Striped Pants"

Here we have another curvaceous doll. Full figure and loving life. I love the shirt I was able to pull off. I love the way the shirt flairs out at the hips, creating an unexpected break to her curves. I must admit to forcing the shirt into this shape with fabric stiffener. (Fabric Stiffener ROCKS)

The truth is Art Dolls really do not care if they can't move around in their outfits. They will stand around quietly for hours without complaining. . . Unlike myself.

This doll is on sale at my Etsy store
