I studied ceramics and traditional Portuguese tile painting "Azuleijos" in the late 1980's in the north of Portugal in the beautiful city of Porto.
My love of cutting edge design,punk rock,arts,music(love it ... I've been in so many bands!) and culture brought me to London back in 1990...has it been that long?!
After a long absence from my sewing machine I reverted to one of my long lost loves: sewing up mischief!
In 2004 I began to sell my dolls on a market stall in Brick Lane in London and that's where it all began to take shape.It's given me the confidence to get out there and sell my creations.Before then I just thought my dolls were twisted and weird...now I know I am but there are others out there too!
Many people ask me if they are toys or for kids? Well yes and no. They are what I call "little bits of my imagination" and they are for everyone to enjoy not just children though many little boys love them. I see them as works of art or soft sculptures!
I have gone on to sell my creations in shops:"Penny Fielding Beautiful Interiors" London (UK) and in "Benetton"/Fabrica Features in Lisbon (Portugal).
All my dolls are designed and made by me. I hope they inspire you in some shape or form and...I'm just happy to be able to share a little of what's in my dark heart!
Best wishes,
Debbie
