Hello and welcome to my Etsy shop, thankyou for looking and considering buying one of my illustrations, artworks or creations...huge smile.

I am an artist and creator with a huge love for the theatre, textiles and all things creative - based in the South East of England.
My art dolls combine all my creative urges ...costume, theatre, sculpting, story telling, creating, tinkering....playing.... they are completely handmade and “One of a Kind, depicting the characters I have met, seen, dreamt of or imagined – little people with large personalities. Each figure is individually crafted and entirely made by hand – using clay or fabric over a wire or wood armature, -some have bead and string moveable joints,- and various textiles and textile techniques to create the clothing. I use a mix of new, vintage and repurposed fabrics and trims and the costumes are finished with hand stitching. Their heads are always made with clay and their faces are hand painted in artists acrylics and finished with matt varnish for protection. No moulds were used in their creation and none made of the originals afterwards – making them all one of a kind and unique individuals… much like us larger people.

Each doll comes with a Certificate of Authenticity (COA)

These art dolls are not intended for children as they are fragile and use many small parts and wire.
