I grew up collecting dolls, and always carrying a pad with me to draw what ever caught my fancy at the moment. But growing in a small European country I never had an opportunity to pursue education in art. We moved to Canada in 1999 and I started looking through doll magazines and saw beautiful work of Lisa Lichtenfels and Jack Johnston. Needles to say I got hooked and started slowly collecting supplies and numerous instructional tools. I self learned many things and have tried many different techniques and always strive to try and learn something new with each new sculpt. I'm looking forward to many more years of self discovery and creative freedom.
