Joy
When I began my experimenting in the altered arts I was immediately drawn to art dolls.  Somehow to me they take on their own personality and almost become my little make believe friends.  I tend to get attach to them rather quickly.  I create art to pass on, and when someone purchases one of these dolls, I feel almost like I run a little adoption agency.  I just get so thrilled when the dolls are received with love, that it keeps me creating new ones.

I use vintage doll heads and repaint them and use my special glaze that gives them a porcelain feel.  I love to collect found objects, especially antique hardware.  The doll bodies are anything from old bobbins, spindles, sprinkler heads, salt and pepper shakers, whatever works.  I gather laces and flowers of all kinds, vintage jewels, keys, old watch faces, etc.  to embellish them.  After they are created they speak to me their story, therefore a new little doll finds a new journey, bringing smile and joy to their receivers with a message all their own.  I have kept a few for myself because they won't let go, not yet anyway.
