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.

Secret Angel

This is an Art Doll that I created in 2008. She was inspired by an idea that there are "Angels All Around Us"

I believe in the "Law of Reciprocity". You get what you give, what comes around goes around. You reap what you sew, Do unto others and Karma, whatever you want to call it, this is the way natural energy works. So one of the ways to put good out there and have good come back to you is through prayer.

Prayer is a good way to put others first and to be a blessing to this world. Also a great way to stay in touch and show your love and reverence to the BIG GUY.

She is on Sale now at my Etsy Store

She is awesome and so are your thoughts.
Someone once told me pray is asking and thanking, while meditation is listening.
