Welcome to Penny Lane Ink. My Shop is full of artsy, handmade things I've made by hand. My love for Art has me dabbling in all mediums.
Creating ART each day literally feeds my soul! Creating Dolls is my new obsession.
I started my Etsy Shop 6 years ago and I've had just about every kind of art imaginable in my listings. I'm the type of artist that loves all mediums. At the moment, I call myself a Doll Maker. I absolutely love making these Wee Bitty Dolls in my sunny studio on the top floor of my country home in the Midwest.
Each step in making these Dolls is a different medium so it actually suits me very well. In order to make my dolls I am a sculpter, painter, fashion designer, stylist and photographer. First I begin to put the form together by gathering different shapes of wood so essentially I'm sculpting. Second I get out my paints and begin to paint the details on the face, body, arms, legs and feet. Third I choose fabrics and embellishments to outfit the Doll. Fourth I weave the hair and style it to match her personality. Finally I photograph my Doll in artsy ways for my Etsy listing.
It takes me a full day to create one of my Wee Bitty Dolls from head to toe. At night I literally dream about the type of character I'm going to create in my studio the next day. When I'm out with my friends looking around antiques shops, I'm on the hunt for vintage embellishments to adorn my Dolls with. My wheels are always turning, I have so many ideas for Dolls I want to make.
