My appreciation for dolls has taken me on an ever evolving creative journey. Why the appeal? Quite simply, I have always been interested in the human form. As a child my favorite subjects to draw were people and this continued well into adulthood.
Over the years, I have made dolls ranging from the whimsical and simplistic to the more sophisticated. Each type has taught me something new and spurred me on to greater challenges. In recent years my focus has been on paper clay combined with fabric. The addition of sculpting has added another layer to my pursuit of doll making as an art form. I have also returned to drawing. You will see some evidence of this on "The Spirit Woods" page.
The art doll movement has been going full strong for years, but still has some distance to go in terms of recognition and acceptance by the art world. There are many outstanding and incredibly talented doll artists who are leading the way. I hope to do my part in raising awareness of this art form.
