About

♥ Handmade Love Birds and Lovelies created with lots of Love ♥

I grew up in Holland, the Netherlands and we always have been taught to create things at home.
I have always been creative and started making things seriously when I was 9 years old.
I used to love watching my mother or her seamstress sewing on an old fashioned Pedal Singer sewing machine. I shall never forget that time, I think that was the spark that inspired me to create my dolls.

I am a self taught person. I do not have a set way of creating.
It often begins with looking at my fabric or flicking through old children books or fashion magazines.
Sometimes an idea will come out of this. I try to make a prop first when I have a doll in mind. If it works out I will turn it into the finished article using the fabric I have in mind.

I love to work with linen, wool, tweed fabric, clay, paints and gemstones.
I have picked up my sculpting and painting recently to create beautiful little animals for my shop.
I used to do lots of sculpting projects for Australian magazines and so happy that I can combine this with my sewn little birds and other animals.
I am inspired by what is all around me.
I make and create each of my creations so you get something unique.
I take the time to make each of them and usually finish off my work by hand so that the stitching and raw edges, for example, are visible.
My work have been featured in a number of books, magazines and blogs around the world.
I am very grateful to find Etsy in 2006, it has given me a lot of exposure and being chosen as a Featured Seller on Etsy in 2010 has given me all the confidence creating new things and test out my new creations.

Big Thank You to Etsy and customers who enjoy and buy my work as much as I do creating them every day with Lots Of Love.
