I am moved to seek inspiration in nature, myth, and folklore. My only hope is that people may find through my art a sense of serenity and peace.

Each doll is one of a kind; I hand sculpt each polymer clay face using molds and paint them with acrylics. You might find small irregularities or imperfections in each face, making the art doll unique.
