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.

'Save Me'

My mind and soul revolt
Burned by the living I make
The pieces of me should cost more
I die in my laboring bodyI live in my creative spirit
It cost nothing to be whole
Scars erased by my passion
My mind and soul are a

I really love these mache one's you are doing. They engage me and make me want to look at them, wonder about them, and basically love them.

Oh, and thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment!!! I really really appreciate comments!
