About

I am an artist that loves to sculpt and paint! I have been making ball jointed porcelain dolls now for the last 5 years. I started with a bang and sold quite nicely here on etsy but then went into a period of exploration and experimentation. I won the doll magazine's award of excellence 2 years in a row, and have shown in Orlando museum of art in Florida (got best of show). I find it fascinating that each doll seems to take on a life of it's own, sometimes even down to dictating what it wants to look like. I never know quite how things will turn out untill they are finished!
It's always a little magical that a medium, be it oil, watercolor or porcelain slip, can go from an inert substance to something that has been brought to life and has energy flowing through it. Well at least that's the goal!…
