Part of my doll-making process. I sculpt the face first. The personality dictated the costume

About

They said "What you do (Dollmaking) is not art, it's a craft"

My dolls are kind of a way for me to express all the femininity,sexiness and confidence I would be mortified to show myself.In a way, they are all me. Making Dolls?I have always made dolls. My sister is proud to say she has the first one. This is all I have ever wanted to do. When I was in art school I never told a soul that I enjoyed Doll making, Philadelphia is NOT Europe where doll making is revered as an art. Later, at the art supply where I worked they said what I was doing was crafts, not real art. I spent many days sitting in front of a blank canvas crying because it wasn't what I really wanted to be (a Painter), but feeling I should be grateful for the opportunity to make art at all. Most people are working so hard they don't get the chance to look for forms of self expression So I made dolls for the children in my family, who accepted them with puzzled expressions.One day I had had enough. I was going to pursue this professionally, I was going to make dolls. Many people didn't get it and they didn't buy."why are you doing this" "lower your prices" "Lower your expectations" But I never gave up.....But the adventure isn't over. I won't give you a happy ending because this is not the end of the story.............
