Thank you so much to the wonderful collector who adopted her, to the fabulous gallery for having her and lovely @animaexmanus for inviting me to exhibit alongside her beautiful dolls with my fellow art doll maker friends!

working on new art doll duo


Whilst waiting to deliver Amelia the hunter art doll to her new home, I have started work on a new art doll duo…

making the heads and hands from clay

making the paper templates of the bodies

painting the heads…

finished their hair

I have made the bodies, adding the hands and a little pair of tights i hand knitted for the girl…

i’m now about to start the costumes! Fun!

working on new little person

I have been a little busy and pre-occupied with this new art doll recently…she is still not finished, but I thought I would give a sneak preview of her. She is a hunter of the hunters…and has yet to have her various hunting equipment attached – which is why there are loose straps hanging from her back, she also needs another wrist band, big boots and her hair done..having lots of fun. As soon as she is finished I promise to return to the stitches! and do more art work!
