About

Mountain Dolls Orignal ArtDolls by Janice Parrott

I live in upstate New York and have been making dolls for over 20 years. I started by making doll clothes for my beautiful daughter, Aly, and it just morphed into dollmaking. It seemed a natural progression. My very first love into the artistic world was quilting. Planning quilts for me is still one of the things I like best. I worked in a small fabric store for several years until she closed :( My severe obsession with fabric, however remained with me.

To me manipulating fabric into something it was never meant for is a decided challenge. To capture motion where there is none in a stationary object always fascinates me.
Another challenge for me was making custom dolls, I have made several over the years. People call them portrait dolls, but I think of them as only the essence of a person. The dolls are not meant to be a replica just an idea of what the person is about. I love research and to research what a person is about is truly what I like best. One time a friend wanted me to make a doll for another friend who was a golfer. I know absolutely nothing about golfing! The challenge was to study how people look holding a club, how they dress (the golf shoes - WOW!) I have had many intricate dolls like that to make and with each new commission the excitement was there to find just the right thing to make the person somewhat recognizable.

I was making what I thought would turn into a baby doll and all of a sudden, she became a little girl, who became Lacie. Lacie and Sandie and all of the characters in my books are part of me and my life on our little piece of the Helderberg Mountains. It is a wonderful area, with animals and beautiful flowers and fields. I love it here, it keeps me creative.

Payment
I accept PAYPAL and as of May 7, 2012 I have direct payment on ETSY. I would appreciate payment within 3 business days. If you have a problem with payment, please contact me and we can work together.

I am also willing to set up custom orders if you need a payment schedule, just convo me and we will work something out.
Shipping
Generally I ship in stock items within one day. Unless it is a MADE TO ORDER piece, then please allow 7-10 BUSINESS days. If it can be sooner, I will certainly let you know. I have tried to keep all of my shipping rates as low as I can.
Refunds and Exchanges
My goal is to make the best quality pieces that I can. If your item is damaged in shipping I will of course, provide a refund. If you leave your doll in the sun for months and the color fades, I am afraid I cannot fix that :) The dolls are all made from fabric and fabric will fade, stain and tear.

I am an extremely accommodating and fair person. Contact me, we will talk, I will do the best that I can to help. I want you to be happy with your doll.

I will accept a return depending upon what the problem is. Again, contact me with your concerns, I am quite sure we can work something out.
Additional policies and FAQs
Please note that my dolls are not meant for young children nor are they toys. If you'd like a custom doll for a child, convo me, I can make a special doll for a child.
