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.

Remember those 6 heads I had in the beginning? Well this is the 2nd and 3rd doll of this series that has been inspired by the movie "Gangs of New York" and "Steampunk" fashion.This doll is titled "Top Hat and Blue Tie". I am pretty creative in my titles, huh?This one is "Red with Top Hat". Hope you will visit my Etsy store and check these new dolls out as well as all the other ones for sale.
