My journey into doll making

Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés wrote: "I hope you will go out and let stories happen to you, and that you will work them, water them with your blood and tears and you laughter till they bloom, till you yourself burst into bloom."

I learned to make rag dolls from my Nana when I was a little girl, I imagine she planted the seed of an idea in my mind which bloomed many years later into my Spirit Art Dolls.
I don't pretend to know much about ancient traditions, but they resonate with me and I allow spirit to guide me while making my dolls. When people ask me why do I make art answer is always the same...because they make me feel good, they also keep me sane and fill my soul with gratitude and peace!

I am sure my dolls serve mainly as decoration to some of my buyers and collectors, but for others they are symbolic of magic and good will, a kind of good luck talisman...quite simply, they are great helpers, little messangers of healing an image of an angel by your front door or besides your bed. I like to think each one of my little dolls finds its own way to your hands charged with good energy and full of creativity, they may serve as a focal point for meditation, as a reminder of intuition, a mandala or a feng shui remedy, my intention is to share with others a little miracle which is still working its magic on me.

What do I call them, people ask...they are Totem Fetishes, Numen Spirits or Fantasy Art Dolls, they are my interpretation of Manitou, they are Nature Spirits, that is what I call my little dolls a little mystery that keeps on giving me joy.

Bright Blessings everyone, thanks for visiting my store and my website
