My newest art doll is now available in my Etsy shop.
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.
My newest sculpts inspired by Alice in Wonderland. They were both hand sculpted using Cernit doll clay over strong wire armatures, hand painted in acrylics and varnished for color protection. Both have been sold.
You can follow my art dolls, costumes and works in progress on my art page.
I plan to make some more Alice inspired dolls soon. For now here is the Queen of Hearts and Alice.
When flipping through the Art Doll Quarterly magazine, I noticed the next challenge was circus themed. My first thought was to stick with my usual darker style. I thought of doing a sword swallower, a knife thrower, or even something from a circus freak show but in the end I went in the complete opposite direction . In my many boxes of fabric, I had lots of pink and blue tulle as well as other things that I found fitting to the topic.
I had lots of fun with this one, especially the hair, which is always one of my favorite parts of designing my dolls. I wanted this to be a playful doll so I went all out with the pieces in her hair. I individually painted some wooden balls in various shades of pink and blue, gathered some lace and tulle, and then added some various found objects in her hair. Their are several butterflies, yellow roses, turquoise yarn, pink bows, silver stars, and even a little unicorn. I had the urge to keep adding and adding, but I had to pull myself away before I overdid it.
For her costume, I individually attached each black strip to give her a striped corset, neckpiece and boots. I then added pink pom poms, pink trim, white lace, glass beads, and some pink and blue tulle for the skirt.
I wanted to give this doll some life so I created a swing for her. It was hell to keep her seated on it since she didn’t want to cooperate but luckily I was able to get a few descent shots.
She is now for sale in my Etsy Shop.

If you are interested in a custom necklace, please visit my etsy shop. I have several different hair colors and ribbon colors available. Each piece is hand sculpted so the faces may vary slightly. Each piece is about 4″, made of cernit clay and finalized with a high quality gloss varnish for protection.
This is a custom piece that I recently did for a customer of mine. I love the hair color choices . So bright and colorful!!
