Dolls

I get my inspiration for my dolls from many sources. Some reflect the changes of the seasons. Others remind me of people I know. Tones of violet and green may surround her. They are an extension of my personality and love of color. I love the colors and textures that I selected for them. Their ensembles are sometimes disassembled and reassembled designer readymade garments and jewelry. Some fabrics are rediscovered in my sewing room after 45 years of collecting them. Many of the beads used are taken from beaded jackets or necklaces that that I find on clearance racks. Each doll takes about one to two weeks to create. Fabrics included in their designs are silks, taffeta, lace, batiks, and cotton. The faces are hand-painted in acrylic on cotton.
