Grace Garton's Little Black Crow Studio. a discombobulated artist and doll maker

Grace Garton is an artist and doll maker residing in Pontville, Tasmania. She is the owner of Little Black Crow studio, where her old world styled cloth doll characters and paintings are lovingly created. To learn more about Grace and Little Black Crow Studio, visit,, Grace also welcomes emails at littleblackcrow [!at]

Leaving a 25 year career in animation behind in 2007, grace began her art and craft business making cloth dolls and mixed media paintings.
Her cloth dolls are reproduced to give an antique look and feel of a well loved doll. The dolls are coffee stained and hand painted. Their tiny tailored clothes are carefully sewn with attention to fabrics and detailing.
Grace’s paintings are inspired by the environment: city, bush, suburbia, rural and nautical.
They all impart an emotion or a memory from childhood or history. “A story evolves in my mind and the canvas becomes like a stage for all my characters to act out on”.

Additional policies and FAQs
All my art dolls are one of a kind hand made originals.They are made to look vintage and worn. Some dolls will have little holes or noticeable repairs. All deliberately done to add character. Quite often I use vintage buttons and these too have signs of wear.

* Dolls are not suitable for children due to small parts, delicate detailing and coffee and varnish finish.

*Dolls are collectors items.

I love making these dolls and put in a lot of work to making them the best that I can. Being the artist of these dolls at times I find some of my dolls are never finished and may change them a little, like painting in shoes or adding a bit more embroidery details.
Photo's will be updated asap, hopefully before a purchase is made. If not I will inform the buyer of these changes.
All that is required to look after these dolls by keeping them out of direct sunlight and a light dust.
