Janice Parrott's Profile
I have been making dolls for over 25 years. Mostly I create cloth dolls, as I love to challenge myself to manipulate the fabric into different things, such as conveying motion. My dolls are all one of a kind (ooak) as all faces are one of a kind.
I also love to do research. I try to understand where things come from, or looking up name meanings or why certain customs are celebrated. Most of the dolls I make either have some sort of story or a nature reference. I spend many hours with each doll, and it is always hard to let them go!
