About

Hello to all. I live in Far North of Australia in a small town surrounded by rainforest and bordered by the Coral Sea. This is a beautiful setting that easily inspires magic and a need to create. I have loved playing with puppets and dolls since I was little. Having six children I could easily continue to `play' as time went by. I initially began making puppets for conflict resolution programs using puppetry to reach children in schools. It was not until a family trauma and loss that I began to make dolls as I went through my own therapeutic and transformative process. As things happen I left doll making aside and followed other paths. I have come full circle now working with children again as a counsellor using play and creative therapies. A dream job for a lover of puppets and dolls. And the best thing for me is I am inspired to begin creating dolls again!
I feel so honoured to be included on the Etsy site…
