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.

'Facade of Perfect'

Perfect what is exposed
Perfect what is
hidden

To remove the roughness
That chases after time
Time is ugly and stinging
Time has inspiration and beauty

In time's duality
Perfect balance is found

'Facade of Perfect - I and II'
Paper mache and clay on wood. 6"x9"
