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.

Wild, Rugged West

New Mexico, USAThere is something different to the way everything looks out west. The sky is different, the terrain is different, the air is different. Never saw a sunset as beautiful as the ones in New Mexico, just outside of Santa Fe.
No, we did not climb the rock, we just sat around and watched the day go by. Very peaceful place and definitely 'The Land of Enchantment'

thanks to Natalie Johnson for the use of her photos

I love the backgrounds- I have never been able to put my characters in plain white settings since I think the scenic props add a story to the character.

This was fun to look at!
