Stages of a doll

I always post my daily progress on my Facebook art page but trying to remember to update my wordpress is another story. So I am a bit late on this dolls progress because she is already completed however thought it would be interesting to do a quick post on the stages of my doll from beginning to completion.

Dolls are pretty time consuming (sketching/planning ideas, armatures, making the eyes, sculpting, cooking, layers of gesso, painting, varnishing, lots of waiting for things to dry, attaching the limbs for the jointed dolls, making the costumes, gluing in the hair, and all the other little details that go into it). It really works my nerves when someone asks if I can “lower the price” or “”omg why does she charge so much”. If only people could understand this, much like painting or any other art form, is a time consuming process, and also these are one of a kind pieces of art. If you want cheap, you can always go for mass produced.

This is my newest piece.  I have lately been taking a small break from my jointed dolls to make  a few standing sculpts. (but don’t worry, jointed ones coming  back soon!) She is my representation of the grim reaper.

Snow White Art Doll

I created Snow White for the Fairy Tale challenge for Art Doll Quarterly magazine and excited to share that she has been accepted and will be shown in the February 2016 edition. Be sure to pick up a copy at your local bookstore and show support to this wonderful magazine!!

She has been sold so will not be listed in my shop. Feel free to check out my art page for many news dolls that I will be creating.  I love sharing in progress pics so you are able to see them as they come to life.
