Danyette Duarte's Profile
Hello and thank you for taking a moment to learn a little about me...
I am a 3rd generation doll designer who comes from a family of crafters and artists. I graduated from the Art Insitute of Seattle for fashion design and have done everyhing from photography to flameworked glass beads before going back to my roots and rediscovering a passion for dollmaking. I am also the proud mother of a talented 5 year old artist named Aliciana. She was the catalyst for this change in focus and remains the perfect little muse!
I made the first little zombie doll, after much pleading from my daughter Aliciana, and had no idea what I had started. Aliciana is a prolific artist and believes that her dolls are very, very sad until they are brought to life and ”Shared with the world”.
We hope you enjoy this…
