About

I have been doing arts & crafts for the past 40 years & enjoy the immense variety of this handmade art. I also love sharing these activities with family members & friends who I have, over the many years, learned so much from. I myself am a multicultural person from 3 different ethnic groups. Plus I grew up with a Hawaiian/Portuguese family. I love different rich cultures & try to incorporate these into my work.
The dolls that I create are one of a kind & I do not duplicate them. Some may come from the same pattern or mold, but I will not duplicate them to be the same. Once I have a blank doll my imagination takes over from there & I never know what they are going to look like until I am done. Fairies & other fantasy characters have always been my favorite.

I crochet, which was my 1st craft. I have crochet blankets, little doll air freshner covers, doll/baby cloths, doilies, etc. Crocheting is relaxing to me. So when I need a minute to relax I crochet. I am not the type of person that can sit with idol hands. I have to be doing something even when watching a TV program.
The other crafts I have done are sewing, plastic canvas, Indian bead work, Hawaiian quilting, Hawaiian leis, painting & probably several other things that I cannot recall at this time.
I am hoping that others enjoy my work as much as I have enjoyed making them. I give credit to all those who make handmade items. It is a work of art that has come from the heart.
