Making dolls, to me, is the natural progression of a childhood spend doodling away. I have spent my life drawing and sketching mostly whimsical and sometimes “a-little-out-there” characters. After realizing that I would never be happy leaving my characters on the page, and tending to enjoy the doodles and the process more then the finished polished work, I let them out.
I have been happily sculpting since 2006.
When I sculpt, things just have a way of coming out by themselves, as if they are preexisting and just choosing to come out at the very moment I pick up a lump of clay.
I am inspired by Aubrey Beardsley, Edward Gorey, Waterhouse, Art Nouveau, Klimt and by the great children’s book illustrators of the Golden Age-Dulac, Rackham and the such. I love to give my dolls a range of expressions and styles, I don’t like to be weighed down by convention too much.
I hope you enjoy viewing my dolls as much as I love making them. They are all completely original, hand made down to the last detail by me.
