Janice Parrott's Profile

About

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! I do hope you enjoy them as much as I have enjoyed making them.

I have recently published my first childrens book, in what I hope will be a series of 4 books. You can read about it on my blog here:
