About

My Anthropomorphic Impulse, Etsy-fied.

Sculpting and drawing as a pre-schooler and sewing as a pre-teen; I've been selling my figures for over 20 years, pre-Etsy. At the heart of my daily practice is an abiding sense of sustainability; a commitment to using only organic materials such as earthenware clays and beeswax. Likewise, vintage apparel and linens beyond restoration are the mainstay of my fabric stash. Most of my costumes give new life to the work-a-day clothes of the last century. Every component of a piece informs my process, and often a nuance of personality will arise out of the remnant itself; my subtler way of doting on the planet and on the palpably silent past of so many storied objects.

Last year I celebrated the 20th anniversary of my induction as an artist member into the National Institute of American Doll Artists! I was the first artist member to do so on a completely anthropomorphic portfolio; later profiled in our beautiful 2009 publication, "Art Dolls: Rich Traditions, New Ideas." --Now serving as the Conference Chair for our 2017 Events, slated for Nashville, Tennessee, August 28th through September 3rd, 2017, I also hope to teach an exciting new Master Class at the Dollmaking School during the same week; watch this space for details!

Returns and exchanges
I will exchange for any item not to your satisfaction for any other item of equal value, except custom orders, which will be handled via email progress reports on commissions over $100. ALL SALES FINAL.
Payment
I accept PayPal and am now pleased to accept all major credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, Discover and American Express) through Etsy Direct Checkout! An 8.85% sales tax charge will be added to all orders received from NY addresses in accordance with tax guidelines for my NYS county.

Sorry, but unless i know you personally, no personal checks or money orders.
Shipping
All items are carefully packed and my fully-insured shipping profiles are pre-calculated based upon USPS 1st Class or Priority Mail with online tracking and my experience so far has been excellent. If you prefer UPS or FedEx, please convo me with your zip or postal code prior to purchase for a shipping quote.

International orders ship via USPS with their required Customs Form (which doubles as a tracking number according to my local postmaster). --And please: do not ask me to contact you outside of Etsy for 'your private carrier' arrangements. It won't happen.

I now ship in-stock items on Tuesdays and Fridays, unless working against a special deadline that has been prearranged via convo, and turnaround time on custom items is individually based on project complexity, which will be agreed upon by us via convo before i begin.
