“An article in Soft Dolls & Animals featured a doll by epb with silk ribbon embroidery, and since I was teaching silk embroidery for Michaels Craft Stores at the time I decided to try making a similar doll. There was no pattern, so it took several attempts before I had the doll I wanted. So I made my first “art” doll by designing the doll, and I haven’t stopped since. My work has been featured in Dolls United, Quilting Arts, Doll Crafter & Costuming, and Soft Dolls & Animals, where I was honored to be asked to be on their Editorial Advisory Board this year. I still indulge in other crafts, but designing and making dolls is my number one love, along with sharing with other doll makers.”

The class covers how to make an armature for paper Mache, working with paper Mache, and polymer clay sculpting. Skills for making the tiny fairy and her costume are covered as well, as well as a very unusual approach for the tree and it’s base.
