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.

World Travelers

So who are these to girls that love to travel and take on adventure?

Georgia and Star are free spirits with tomboy natures. They love to try new things. Nothing seems beyond possibility. They want to challenge themselves in every way. From eating new foods to meeting new people. They live to experience life.They respect and accept all cultures and strive to learn from experiencing the differences each holds. This is the quality that makes them great world travelers. They hope that each place they visit and each person they meet will become part of who they are, ultimately making them true citizens of the great planet earth.Where they travel is unknown even to them. Destinations just pop into their heads and then they are off, after all the World is Waiting . . . for fearless souls . . .

If you would like these two to visit some place you've been email me some pics and info. I can't pay, but I will give you photo credit.
