I'm a graphic artist who plays with dolls.
I haven't decided yet what I like to do best so I do everything :-)
I enjoying drawing, painting, sculpting, customizing dolls, pottery, miniatures, dollhouses, gardening, cooking, photography..... not necessarily in any order of preference. I just love everything and I have restless hands.
