About

Higher Delights Doll Shop

I love little cute things. I can't help it- kittens, ponies, cupcakes, tiny toys, baby clothes, etc--- make me coo and babble like a fool. I draw like a girl, can't help that either. I've come to accept my "girliness" despite my fantasy of being tough like a superhero, ninja, pirate...something tough. Sigh- not me. Anyway, I have three kids, a few cats, a horse, and I make dolls.

I started making dolls a few years ago after seeing some incredible porcelain ball-jointed dolls in a magazine. I wanted one so badly but didn't have the money to buy one. It finally occurred to me that with the skills I had from my four years of working in a sculpture lab at my art college the Columbus College of Art and Design) "Duh! I can make my own!" After much trial and error, internet research, blood, sweat, tears, and a little (lot of) cursing, I finished my own doll. I sold the second doll, and have sold every one I have finished since then. When I started I was doing it for fun, to satisfy my need to create. Now, these creations help support my family. I'm working on new dolls and projects all the time, please visit now and then and see what I come up with. I surprise myself sometimes what I have sitting finished on my desk!
