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.

Work In Progress

This doll is inspired by all those who love shoes. Shoes are Fashion Statements and Fashion Arguments

As long as they are flat and comfortable. I use to only buy Doc Martin's. Mostly I wear Birkenstocks, but if I had the money I would buy tons of the same shoes in different colors.

Which is what this doll does. . . . . . . . . . .

For years I wore combat boots. To this day I still wear heavy shoes and boots. Never know what kind of situation you will find yourself in. (Hugs)Indigo
