    I have not received the item. The artist e-mail me that the doll was damaged

    I am surprised to see this one star review! It is true that I did not realize that the doll had become damaged when the order was placed. I contacted the customer to let her know and she decided to apply the amount paid towards a different sculpture. That doll was shipped to her and she emailed me to confirm that it was received.

A doll maker is born

People frequently ask me if I loved dolls as a kid. The truth is that I did not. I was a tomboy. The one brief stint of doll obsession I had was with She-Ra because she carried a sword. So when I fell into doll making it was as much a surprise to me as anyone else.

In 2003, a friend sent me a link to a Japanese doll gallery that showcased artists who created hand made, child sized ball joint dolls and set them up in rather elaborate installations to be viewed like a nightmare from childhood. I don't think my friend realized that it would open a flood gate of creativity for me that, almost 13 years later, has not subsided.

I was able to combine my various, and seemingly unrelated creative interests, in sculpting, sewing, and painting, into one unit: doll making. By using the doll form, people immediately have an established emotional or sentimental response to it. I like to use that emotion that is already present to manipulate or distort the childish glamor behind an object.

My work has been featured in a variety of television, newspaper, and magazine appearances. You can find out more at Find out when new dolls are available, click here to join my mailing list:

    It was the discovery of polymer clay that transformed my career as an artist and allowed me to combine my interests in design, sewing, sculpting, and painting and gave me a concrete foundation of expression in the form of "Strange Dolls."

Thank you for your interest in my Strange Dolls! The items in my shop are hand sculpted, one of a kind, pieces of art. Some items incorporate castings from a mold of one of my designs. Even so, every piece is sculpted, the clothing is hand sewn for and the faces or objects are hand-painted. I have noted within each listing which is an original and which incorporates my own castings.
