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
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.

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.
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.
I am a little late on posting this one. She has already been sold so I will not be listing in my shop. For more of my works and my daily works in progress please visit my art page.
My newest doll is now complete and listed in my shop

Another doll that I am currently working on.
This is a doll that I had sculpted a while back, experimenting with my own handmade eyes. I put her aside and got busy on other projects and wasn’t sure if I would ever return to her nor what direction I wanted to go. Finally I got around to giving her some life and I decided to just play around and let her guide me. No planning, just playing and being completely spontanious. Sometimes I really enjoy it that way.
I had some leftover gold trim from a previous costume so began to wrap her hair. From their I began to see her as some sort of goddess. I then envisioned her simply in gold and white dress….
