Her body is fabric stuffed with poly fill and her arms and face are sculpted in clay. She measures 24.5″ long and 12.5″ seated.

Follow my Facebook page for more of my dolls and WIP! Since Mardi Gras is almost here in the South, I decided to make a few fun dolls inspired by it. Pictures coming soon.

Grim Reaper Art Doll

I am finally getting back to working on new dolls. Lately I have been so busy with commission costumes that I had to slow down on my sculpting but I am near completion on my last commission…..just in time to start some pieces for halloween (my favorite time of the year!)

My grim reaper  is now completed and for sale in my Etsy shop!  Like all my dolls, she is 100% handmade without use of any molds. I have hand sculpted all the little skulls and details on her head and chest.  I use cernit clay (which I have found is the strongest of all polymers) and she is built over a carefully constructed wire based armature. She is painted in acrylics, and varnished for color protection. She stand about 15″ high and is not posable. Her eyes were also handmade by me.

For more of my works please visit my art page where I love to share my progress of each doll.

Kitsune (fox spirit)

In mythology, Kitsune is a Japanese fox spirit also sometimes known as the nine tail fox. They possess magical abilities and often the number of tails they have will indicate how wise, old and powerful. They also have the ability to shape shift into human form, which is a concept I have always found inspiring. Like fairytales, mythology is something I grew up reading. Various trips to the library would result in a large pile of books focusing on Norse, Greek, Egyptian, Celtic and Asian mythologies. Japanese, in particular is one that always intrigued me. I have since been fascinated with Japanese culture, masks, costume, animation and theatre.

Instead of my normal ribbon jointed method, I decided to make this a standing sculpt so that I could place a lantern and japanese pipe (kiseru) in her hands. I also wanted to experiment with detailing the base which is something I have done in past sculpts and think I will continue in a new series of dolls.

She is now for sale in my Etsy shop. As always layaway is available.

Celeste

Again, I am behind on my posts so working to update my last few dolls that I forgot to post.

Here is Celeste, one of my stuffed body doll with clay face, lower arms and hands. She is full of beautiful lace and has a little victorian feel to her. I was  inspired by the work of the illustrator Sakizo an had the urge  to create her after my recent convention. I adore this doll and think she is one of my favorites. In fact, if she doesn’t sell I may claim her myself and keep her forever haha. Right now she is proudly displayed on my wall along with my other art.

Please follow my art doll page. I love posting progress of my dolls and new works monthly.

She is available in my Etsy Shop

OOAK ART DOLL RABBIT

I had started this doll with the intention of having her completed for Easter but got so side tracked with the commission wedding dress as well as my own personal costumes. She is now completed and up in my Etsy shop waiting for a home. As always, layaway is available and I can break payments up to help make her easier to afford.

As with all my dolls, she is 100% handmade with no use of molds. Many hours and much love have gone into their construction. All pieces are original works that cannot be duplicated.

Art Doll with antlers and lace

I have been super busy working on a commission wedding dress (which I admit I am so happy to have out of my hands) as well as personal costumes for upcoming conventions  that I had put away my clay for a short period of time.  I believe its been about 3 months  since my last doll and I am happy to be back sculpting. My head is filled with lots of new ideas and I have been going back to some of my old sketches which I am using for inspiration.

I am really excited about the direction of her that I have decided I will create a costume for myself based off this design (that is if my mind doesn’t drift to something else as it often does)  Hoping to have it ready for my September/October Ren fair that I go to every year.

Anyway I still have a bit of work to do on her but hope to have ready for sale soon. You can follow my work and progress (which I love to share) on my art page.
