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 First Art Doll . . . . . . . .

That I liked . . . . . . . .


The doll is titled "Yellow". Yellow is quite different from the dolls I do today. My understanding on how to construct the body was in its initial stage. The torso and heads were one piece and I had no idea on how to handle arms, so I left a hole in the shoulder of the torso and shoved a wire through to be support and then shoved the wire into the arms. Lots of shoving involved. I still do lots of shoving come to think of it.

Her face is basically a mask made of sculpey. It is stuck onto the fabric head. She is a bit stiff, but I love her. She will always be the one who told me I was an Artist and I should keep making dolls.
