The Origns of Melandolly
I was born in Brooklyn New York and I’ve been interested in art since the age of 6. I graduated from The New York College of Technology with an Associates degree in Art and Advertising and a Bachelors degree in Communication Design. I started creating dolls as of July 2010 after seeking advice from other doll makers that I’ve met on the internet and at gallery openings. Since I like to work with expressions, my pieces usually display a hint of sadness which is why I called them Melandollys. They are a reflection of how we are taught in society to hide our feelings. We are constantly surrounded with images of cheerful people in media and it conditions us to believe something is wrong when we feel otherwise. I juxtapose these undesirable feelings and expressions with dolls since they are normally thought of as smiling objects of play and confront the viewer with emotions that are normally reserved for the privacy of one’s home. This is my way of encouraging people to be more comfortable with their inner feelings and accept that we are not perfect.
