I just sent out this special order to Hong Kong—I loved how these prints look in miniature form, so they’re now available in mini-baroque frames along with their Halloween cousins.

About

I make Victorian gothic art dolls and other fantastical but entirely plausible creatures.

I hope you enjoy these guardians, messengers, and jesters as much as I do. I fall in love with every one, but I know they will find a wonderful new home.

I began making art dolls several years ago. While I have an arts background, I was a fantasy writer for many years. I'm still a voracious reader of magical tales, creepy carnivals, secret forests, and disturbing creatures.

The Victorian era has a special allure and I collect Victorian and Edwardian clothing and ephemera. I prefer things that are tattered, stained and torn. If they're damaged, then I don't mind cutting them up. They tell secret stories--I've found labels, mending, brooches, and sewing pins tucked inside many garments.

Frequently asked questions
Shipping Overseas

Please be aware that your item may be held at customs for inspection, delaying the delivery time, and you may be charged a customs fee or import tax or similar. Unfortunately, there is nothing I can do about customs clearance - customs rules make the importer (the buyer - you!) responsible for these fees.
