Handmade Art Dolls of the Utmost Class and Delight!

Hi, I´m Lesley and thank you for stopping by my page!

I make art dolls from my little home studio here in Barcelona, Spain. I am originally from Scotland, but love brought me over here...

I used to be a librarian, but when the recession hit the UK, I lost my job and just couldn´t seem to get another one. One day, I decided to drag my sewing machine down from the loft, to keep myself busy. My Mum had bought it for me one Xmas, many years before, and it had ended up in the loft, gathering dust. I tried to make some simple clothes, but I lost interest, until the day I was browsing around the library and came across a book by Patty Medaris Culea and I just couldn´t believe that what I saw on the front was a doll! I checked the book out and rushed home with it, all excited. My excitement only lasted a short while as I flipped through the pages and became overwhelmed by the amout of ´stuff´that you needed to make an art doll. I only had my sewing machine a pair of kitchen scissors! I was so disappointed, that I took the book back the next day. However, after a little bit of googling, I realised that there were way easier patterns available, that didn´t require me to have a mountain of materials and equipment. I found a free one-piece pattern online, and off I went - me and my kitchen scissors!!

The rest is history really...I gradually got better, I bought a few more complicated patterns and I found my feet, and I have really never stopped since! I love making dolls, and brininging new characters to life, and getting all creative. I hope that you will find a creation that catches your eye, or that you will just enjoy looking at the pictures of my girls. You can follow me on Facebook and Instagram too - I would really love to see you there!

Hey, welcome to my policy page...

I'm glad you've had a chance to take a look around my shop. I hope that you like my dolls, but please, please PLEASE remember that they are not toys, and not suitable for children. I don't have children, but I know that they can take things apart and get into all sort of trouble with little bits and pieces, and I really don't want that to happen with anything that you buy from me. If you do decide to buy one of my gals (and I really hope that you do), please use her just for decoration. These are collectable art dolls, and should be handled only with very gentle care.

If you want to see more photos of a particular doll, drop me a line and I'll be happy to do that.

You can reach me through Etsy conversations, or my own email address is lesleyjcameron [!at] hotmail.com I check my emails all the time, so I can get back to you pretty soon.
