Announcement   It is by no chance you have arrived here, as you have been pixie led to The Pixie Knoll! A hearty welcome to you, traveler! Never fear, it is safe here, so relax and take your time exploring our wares as there is no need to dash off so quickly!

The pixies and I are so delighted you stopped by for a visit! Why not pull up a toad stool and sit for a spell, sip on a cup of dandelion tea and watch while each little pixie's new adventure unfolds right before your eyes!

My fellow pixies and I are always busy creating stuff in our tiny workshop. You just never know what those critters will want to create next! And the messes they can make! Oh, my, can they make a mess. Don't worry, eventually you get used to their messy antics, after all, to make good art, one must make a mess....at least, that is what they tell me.

Lately, we have been very busy dreaming on some really big adventures that will take us all on fantastical journey's that will tickle your imagination every step of the way. Our new adventures will not only bring fabulous sculptured figures, but it will also open the door to colorful illustrations that will give you the glimpse of the earthly other-realm of fairies and pixies that live just beyond our daily vision. And who knows? Perhaps along the way, we might bring an enchanted fairy tale along for the ride too!

Many moons ago, when I first stepped foot into The Pixie Knoll, it was my intention to build a land full of these little beings, each with their own story to tell. It has been a good thing so far, but now the inner pixies are itching for more. So, the time has come to expand on this world in more depth. It will be an adventure like none other, I am sure. I guarantee there will be a few messes along the way, but if everything goes according to the "dream" then we are off to some wonderful, creative adventures. The creative journey is indeed a magical thing!

Our home here is very humble, but it is our own and we are glad to share it with you. So, enjoy your dandelion tea and take your time browsing through our creative wares. The pixies and I hope you will consider taking a part of The Pixie Knoll home with you. Each piece has the pixie stamp of approval!

It is our wish to spread happiness every where we go and to all that come for a visit.

You can follow me on my website www.thepixieknoll.com or you may visit my blog for a more in depth view of The Pixie Knoll at www.thepixieknoll.blogspot.com (of course, I can not guarantee it is currently an up to date read....after all, creativeness takes you away from those types of things haha) or you may simply contact me at lori [!at] thepixieknoll.com. However you choose to contact me, the pixies and I look forward to hearing from you!

About

Pixie Led

It is true that I started on my creative journey when I picked up my first crayon and never looked back. In fact, we all begin in such a manner. When we are young, we have no fear of anything, except for maybe the monster in the closet. But one thing is for certain, as a child, we never fear creating anything and using our imagination.

Unfortunately, an odd thing happened along the way to adulthood. I LOST my fearlessness and imagination where art was concerned. Yes, it's true. It happens to the best of us. Luckily for me, I realized this horrible atrocity and corrected it straight away! So, I went and received an A.S. in Graphic Design in 2000 to help set this wrong to a right. At the time, my plans were to go into the field of children's book illustration, however that never happened. Instead I was pixie led into the world of sculpting artist dolls.

In 2008, I sculpted my first figure out of polymer clay, a Santa. Mind you, there was room for a lot of improvement to be made, but for my first figure, he was pretty darn good! Now, I would be lying if I said everything I created was absolutely out of this world, but honestly, in the beginning, I made some pretty hideous looking figures. However, I was learning and growing in my art and without the encouragement of family and friends, I would have given up on it a long time ago.

As a result of all the love and encouragement from my tribe, I stayed on the path of creating artist doll figures. Obviously I improved along the way and gained my 15 minutes of fame and notoriety having been published in Dolls Magazine, Pretty Toys Magazine, Doll Crafter and Costuming (no longer in publication) and International Doll Artist Magazine. Not only that but I have been fortunate enough to receive awards too like the Best Fantasy Figure awards from Colliii in 2012, and the Dolls in Excellence awards in 2013, 2014, and 2015. So, I guess the moral of the story is if you enjoy what you create and stick with it long enough, you can accomplish great things...no matter what your art form is. :-)

So, that brings us to the here and now.

I still spend my days and nights in my studio giving life to the fabulous make-believe characters from the earthly realms, however, I am about to expand on this great adventure in the land of The Pixie Knoll. Soon, I will revisit my former dream of illustration and begin to combine that with the charming beings of The Pixie Knoll. With any luck, it will lend it's way to a fabulous children's book great for both children and adult's alike!

In the meantime, while we wait for this great adventure to take shape, feel free to let your inner pixie out to play and enjoy visiting my shop here at The Pixie Knoll. Here, you are sure to find pixies of all shapes and sizes, ready to bring a bit of magic to your life.

    I started on my creative journey when I picked up my first crayon and never looked back. Since that time, I met a few pixies along the way. We now spend our adventures creating happy messes in the studio that we hope you will enjoy as well.

Shop policies

Last updated on May 11, 2018
I am an imaginative, self-taught figurative sculpture artist who is driven by an incredible passion for self-expression through figurative art. My one-of-a-kind figures are often noted for their unique style, whimsy and attention to detail.

Usually I create whimsical pixies, elves, fairies and other magical beings whom I imagine could live within the land of The Pixie Knoll, but every now and again you will find creations for the Holidays as well....especially those pertaining to Halloween and Christmas, my 2 most favorite times of the year!

Along side my love of figurative art, you will find other things that I like to create as well, whether that be gourd artistry or painting and illustration.

Regardless what you might find here in my shop at The Pixie Knoll, rest easy knowing that it was hand-crafted with love, full of heart and soul with the intentions of bringing happiness to your world from mine.

Thank you for visiting my shop at The Pixie Knoll. I hope you found a bit of happiness and that you will return to visit again!

I take great care in packaging my artist dolls and other artistic items for their journey. But, if, for some reason, you receive your item damaged due to shipping, PLEASE contact me ASAP (within 3 days of delivery) so that we can work work together to make it right. If, after 3 days of delivery, you have not contacted me of a problem, I feel it is safe to agree that everything arrived accordingly and your are satisfied with your purchase. I want everyone to be a satisfied customer who will return to my shop again and again. Thank you for your understanding in this policy. Updated: 5/11/2018
Payment
All transactions are through PayPal and to be made at the time of purchase.

I also accept payment plans.

Buyers interested in creating a payment plan with me, should contact me to make arrangements to set up a payment plan agreement suitable for both of us, the buyer and myself.

PAYMENT PLAN OPTION:

The buyer is required to make a down payment at the time of "intended" purchase in order to have the desired item placed on hold. At which time, I will mark the item in an "on hold-payment plan" status. Interested buyers should contact me directly to make arrangements prior to purchase if you would like to set- up a payment plan. Otherwise, items are purchased at full price and paid accordingly. All items will be paid for in full prior to shipping. If you are using a payment plan, payments will be set up for either once a month payment or every 2 weeks, depending on which works best for you.

I will send you a PayPal invoice on our schedule payment day. This invoice should be paid for within 3 days of receipt, each time you receive your invoice until you have completely paid for your purchase in full. If 3 months (90 days) have lapsed without payment and without collaboration with me, then I will assume you have forfeited your desire to make a purchase. At this time, I will mark the item available for sale again and will keep all of the funds you have paid to that point. It is in my opinion that the monies previously sent for payment will cover my time in book keeping and the loss of potential sales while my item was listed off the market and on hold to accommodate your desired purchase.

Please note: When you place an item in the payment plan, 20% of the purchase price is NON REFUNDABLE should you change your mind on your purchase. I feel this is necessary to deter non-payment as well as cover my loss in time for not having the item available for purchase as well as to cover my time and fees for PayPal invoicing.

Please keep in mind that I offer payments to help you out and to make my art obtainable to all who would desire a wonderful work of art. BUT....this is my livelihood, it is my business, this is how I feed my family and pay my bills. So, your failure to pay, hurts more than me and my business.

Thank you for your understanding in this matter. Updated: 5/11/2018
Shipping
Generally, I do all of my shipping within one business day of your full payment. If your purchase is over a holiday or the weekend, obviously, I will ship the next available shipping day.

I do most of my shipping through the USPS. On occasion, I might use UPS if the item is an extremely LARGE piece of work. This is a rare occurrence, but it does happen on occasion.

For International purchases, I will ship FIRST CLASS INTERNATIONAL MAIL through the USPS. It has been my experience, that shipping priority International does not mean the package arrives any quicker. So, there is no sense in wasting your hard earned money. :-)

If you are purchasing more than one item from the store, I will combine shipping. However, please understand that my artist dolls come in different weights, shapes and sizes, so I will need to calculate the weight and size of the package prior to knowing how much to charge. The easiest way to handle this is for you to make your purchase, then, I will reimburse you the overage for the shipping. It makes more sense for me to do this, than to make several trips back and forth from the post office trying to get the right shipping totals. :-)

Thank you for your understanding on this matter. Updated 5/11/2018
