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.

Lost and Found

While doing some therapeutic cleaning, I found this doll hiding behind a curtain. Not sure why I hid him because he is really a wonderfully funny guy. He is one of my original first attempts at making a doll.And yes I think he is making that 'farting' noise with his hand.He has inspired me to work in a new style of doll. One that will allow me to do whatever I want without the restraint of the human form . . . . . . Because this guy a'int human . . . . .

He is just so cute, and I love dolls that are amusing looking like that.
