Doll making is an art form, just like painting. Some will disagree with me, but that's how I feel about it. Every doll maker is different. Some of them want to stick in a category, others want to stand apart.
I design dolls for seven reasons (in no particular order):
1. I cannot find what I like in stores
2. To express my vision
3. To challenge myself
4. To test my fashion designs
5. It is more fun than painting on canvas
6. Because I have a Peter Pan complex, lol
7. I love dolls!
Doll making becomes a complex equation. Each doll that I create I have to figure out things like: how am I going to make this Mohawk? How am I going to make this garment look like the sketch in every aspect? I love it, I love making dolls. I love sharing my work with people.
