National Institute of American Doll Artists (NAIDA) and  Southern Highland Craft Guild

I had a late start working at dollmaking so have really pushed myself to learn. I am interested in the figure portrayed in exaggerated stylized form. Color and proportion are central to my ideas as a doll maker and I like to use opposites on the color wheel to energize the costume for the viewer. Color and costume are two of my strengths as a doll maker. Shape balanced upon shape; colored and textured like an illustration is the way I design a doll. My dolls are an expression of my most tender heart. They are the most personal expression of my artistic soul that I have found and I expect to be working in this medium for a very long time.
