Like many others I've worn different hats through my life and raised a family too, but always I enjoyed different forms of art as a sort of meditative release. Later in life I discovered a newfound joy in figurative art and the sculpting of animals, art dolls, dollhouse figures, and more.
Embracing the mantra of OOAK--"one of a kind," has kept all my creations varied and held my interest with its many challenges. I've been sculpting since around 2012, and my Etsy shop has been open for many years. I try to keep it filled with a variety of dolls. I also have a Facebook artist page and belong to a couple of very wonderful and active doll artist organizations, making many new friends along the way.
I've had the pleasure and honor of winning awards from the International Art Doll Registry (IADR) and my dolls have been featured in the e magazine A For Artistic as well as the quarterly magazine put out by the Professional Doll Makers Association.
