I have been an artist as long as I can remember. I have always been drawing, painting, sewing or crocheting little blankets for my barbies. Making dolls was just something I did from a very young age. Then I saw my first one of a kind polymer doll and I knew that was what I had to do.
Formally trained as an illustrator and graphic designer, my career path changed when I pursued my love of doll making. In 1990 an artist representative in Chicago, IL, saw some of my dolls and took me, along with several other of his artists, to Toy Fair in New York City. My dolls, Victorian and turn of the century girls and faeries, sold out in 30 minutes and I had orders to keep me busy for the next year.
I have been published in Dolls Magazine and Contemporary Doll Collector and have won awards over the years for my doll making. My dolls and fairies are collected by well-known Hollywood celebrities and have been shown in many galleries and stores throughout the country and in Paris.
I took a 10 year hiatus in the late 90's to work in advertising and web design, but then upon having my first baby and being home with him, I picked up the clay again and from that moment on, I cannot stop. Weather it be sculpting babies, or little girls, the thought of the next "perfect" doll always calls me.
