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.

'The Greeners'

Green is an inspiring color and my my little green non human doll is inspiring me to a new style and new ideas.These three are the first at a group I call 'The Greeners'. Not at all human, not at all perfect, but all very green. I am teaching myself my own path here. It is all very experimental when it comes to the anchor points for the needlesculpting. I am not at all caring if the features are beautiful or strange. These guys are individual and have no rules. Hope you all like this new direction I am heading . . . . .
