I am a self taught artist, having learned everything by a lot of trial and a fair bit of error !
As far back as I remember I have been making little things.
As an imaginative child I would make tiny dolls to live in matchboxes, finger puppets, peg dolls and rag dolls. I was a voracious reader and would try to bring characters from the stories I read to life.
If I couldnt make them then I would draw them and would spend hours sketching .
I progressed to making over Barbie, Tressy and Daisy dolls, designing and sewing outfits and giving them radical hair cuts.....
Things havent changed that much really !
Miniatures really caught my imagination when my own children were very young .Of course once I started collecting I started making, first miniature accessories and furniture and then dolls .
I have been making miniature dolls for many years now and can honestly say I have enjoyed every minute !
I achieved Artisan status with I.G.M.A in 2009
As well as making one of a kind miniature dolls I also like to customise Blythe dolls
This started as a hobby but has blossomed into another side of my business.
I have a facebook page dedicated to my Blythe work
My work can be purchased through my Etsy shop ( there is a page here directly linked to it )
I also exhibit at Kensington Dolls House Festival in the United Kingdom.
