OooDolls

Hi, I'm Colleen. Welcome to my wonderful world of "OooDolls". 



I was born with a yearning to create. I loved arts and crafts from my early days. My training in decorative and fine arts has allowed me to express myself through my dolls.



As a child I painted and created things with my hands. I’m continually amazed at what one can make from found materials, things on-hand and around the house.

My first doll was made from a stuffed sock with yarn hair, glued-on buttons and bits of left over lace from my mother’s sewing kit, and a face painted with a magic marker.



Today, it’s a different story.



It began the Christmas of 2013 when my husband and I visited our good friends Davy and Elizabeth on Pender Island, BC. I noticed a cute little doll propped up against a window with a familiar texture. I didn’t know what it was made out of or called but it triggered memories from my past.



When I was young I had a favorite book about a princess and a white swan. The illustrations are from photos of the princess, a doll with a texture identical to the one Elizabeth had made. I always wondered what that texture was until Elizabeth told me that it was a needle felting doll. That was my inspiration and this body of work arose from it.
Thank you, Elizabeth!



I’ve assembled a series of ballerina dolls with cute pointy ballet shoes, fun dresses and heads of colorful hair. Each one I make inspires other designs and I’ll add new series to this site - I won’t repeat older designs - I have too many new ones in mind. Each of my dolls represents a unique idea brought to life.

    There's no other way to say how much I love making dolls but to just make it whether it sells or not. With my background with Decorative and Fine Art, I eased into the world of needle felt smoothly. I don't think i'll ever stop creating dolls.
