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.

Got Big Dreams

and I have talent and maybe the two meet here. Out of the past my dolls Georgia and Star have inspired me to think about a larger market. The way to get to this market is through licensing my art.My ideas started after I was clipping this doll 'Georgia' out of a photo to place on a background. Started thinking about how appealing she might be on all sorts of products aimed at little girls.
Georgia and Star share the spirit of being tomboys and so they could appeal to all girls. I would love to hear your thoughts. I am just in the beginning stages of this and I am very excited.
