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.

European Vacation

We crossed the big wide ocean to find the old world.

London, England is the perfect city for a red he
ad doll. Wonder if my English ancestors stood in this river too?
Star has always had a love for Swedes, so our vi
sit to Göteborg Sweden was incredible.As world travelers, one must always be willing to get their feet wet.
The best views are always from the left . . .

thanks to Walter Davis for the use of his photos

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