I began dollmaking in the 90"s. I've enjoyed all phases of doll creating, especially making the antique reproductions of French and German dolls. The molds available from Dollspart are especially great to work with. I have won numerous awards for my dolls. These include The Millie, The Maggie, Rosettes and lots of Blue Ribbons from the Doll Artisan Guild (DAG), a Bell Award, and the Pearl Award from IDMA.
I'vd had the nicest opportunities with dollmaking, including hosting dollmaking and costuming workshops with Susan Fosnot and Sylvia Macneil, which were wonderful. They were great for all of us "students"!
Dollmaking is an rewarding endeavor and a joyful experience to be shared with doll friends, doll lovers and collectors. Residing in Ellijay, in the North Georgia Mountains, is the perfect environment to peacefully enjoy making dolls and sewing costumes for them.
Have a look below to see some of my recently completed dolls, all from the fabulous Dollpart molds.
