Occupation Dollmaker
Location The most boring spot in the universe. I'm not kidding., United States
Introduction Hi. I am glad you stopped by my little corner of the world. First and foremost, I am a dollmaker. Sometimes I like to make collectable dolls, and at other times, I like to make Waldorf dolls. It could be said that this dichotomy deals with both sides of my dollmaking spirit. However, as of late, I am leaning more and more towards Waldorf dollmaking. The idea of making a small child happy makes me feel extremely satisfied. More so, than making collectable dolls. I think it has to do with the fact that I am now a mommy. However, it is not to say that I will stop altogether making collectable dolls. I think every now and then a little monster or creepy thought will manifest itself as a doll. The tradition of Waldorf (Steiner) dolls is my favorite avenue to express my more nurturing side. Like other Waldorf dollmakers I strive to use clean carded wool and organic cotton and the finest yarns. I hand embroider the doll's little eyes and mouth and sometimes I will embroider their hair too. I love this style of dollmaking. It is my fondest hope that with each doll, I can bring some small bit of happiness in this world. Thanks for your support.
Interests I love the following in no significant order: Dollmaking, drawing everyday, movies, learning new things, outsider art, making patterns, sewing, textile arts, artist trading cards, tag art, and reading.
Favorite Movies The Bad Seed, any movie by Takashi Miike, Takashi Kitano (with the exception of "Brother" hey, I still have some standards!), Akira Kuroshowa, Stanley Kubrick, John Waters, Christopher Nolan. Heck, I could go on and on.
