The inspiration for my handmade dolls comes mostly from stories, particularly the myths, folklaw and history of the British Isles. Each of my dolls comes with its own unique story.

About

Stories in three dimensions.

My mother tells me that from the age of five I used to make tiny, half-inch, fully dressed plasticine mice and present them to visitors [I must have been an embarrassing child!]. At school I loved art, especially sculpture, but hated needlework! This changed when, at the age of 18, I was paid for my first piece of commissioned work and used the proceeds to buy a sewing machine. I then made rag dolls and sold them for pocket money throughout my years at university.

While I initially went to art college my interests eventually lead me to study psychology. From my earliest memories I have been fascinated by story. I had read stories, listened to stories , told stories and written stories but it was only now I learned the deeper significance to the human psyche of narrative and archetypes and what we can learn about cultures, groups and individuals from the stories they tell. Inevitably perhaps stories came to play a large part in my therapeutic work with children.

Well marriage and career came along and my sewing machine gathered dust in the attic until late in 2011 I was sat at home recovering from a major operation. I could not go to work, I could not ride my horses [my usual leisure activity] so, in desperation, I decided to dust down the sewing machine and make a dress. However, when I got started I found myself, almost with conscious thought, making a doll instead. It was like a dam breaking! before I knew it I had made half a dozen and Tattermedallion was born. That dress never did get made!
