I make the dolls I wish I had had when I was young

I'm essentially a country girl who has never lived in the country. I sew and quilt and garden and can- and if you think it's easy to put up a dozen jars of apple butter in a galley kitchen in Harlem, think again! I'm not in that tiny apartment now, and my shop is the reflection of the sort of things I wanted and couldn't have as a child in southern California. I longed for wood floors, but we had shag carpet. I wanted quilts, we had bedspreads. I wanted old-fashioned, Victorian styled dolls, we had Barbie. I'm not knocking Barbie, she was a fun gal, but I had a romance with the past that she couldn't compete with. I want everything I make to go to that child or collector who wants what is intricate, hand made and purposely intended to be an heirloom.
