Sandie Nowell's Profile

About

My name is Sandie Nowell. I have been a doll artist for 20 years and have owned a shop in Bandon by the Sea in Oregon and a shop/studio on the Big Island of Hawaii, where I also did art shows at the Kona Village Resort.

I have sold wholesale to shops all over the USA as well as Australia. I love fantasy and my specialities are fairies and mermaids. As a child I spent time in my grandma's garden floating imaginary fairies and mermaids on flower petals and walnut shell boats, on rivers and lakes that I created with grandma's garden hose. Glitz and glitter is what dazzles me.

I only make one of a kind dolls, since each face is hand drawn and all dolls have a personality of their own.

When I am creating a mermaid I imagine myself swimming in the sea, hunting for treasure chests full of jewels, crowns…

I only make one of a kind dolls, since each face is hand drawn and all dolls have a personality of their own.

When I am creating a mermaid I imagine myself swimming in the sea, hunting for treasure chests full of jewels, crowns and pearls that I would use to enhance my beauty. On the other hand, when I spend time in fairyland , I am in the woods, a hidden thicket or garden, looking for some lost trinket or flower that fits my whimsey... I believe that I am a treasure hunter in my heart since I love hunting for special treasures and many times create the doll around them.

I have also done porcelain dolls, but cloth and fabric are my favorite...there are so many different ways to create with them. I love wispy and vintage fabrics for my fairies.

Some of my friends say I live in a fantasy bubble...they are right...and it is a place where fairies fly and mermaids frolic and the dust is made of glitter!
