Born in 1966 in British Columbia, Canada, I have had the pleasure of living and sculpting in Canada, Mexico and now in Arizona. Over the past 30 years or so I have probably touched on every craft known to man. Not a bad thing unless you live with me and can’t get used to the fact that I usually start by taking up one room….then 2….3 until I pretty much can call the whole house my craft room 🙂 About 8 years ago, after the tragic loss of my 13 year old son I picked up a lump of clay for the first time as a way to cope with grief. It was very healing for me and I began creating static sculpts in polymer clay. I loved being able to bring something to life out of a simple lump of clay, even if only I could tell what the end product was. It wasn’t long before I stumbled across the world of ball jointed dolls (BJD’S). These amazing dolls could pose, show attitude and yes I think a little soul too! I was hooked and began to teach myself to sculpt my own BJD’S. Along the way I put everything to use I had learned in the past with the long road of arts and crafts plus a ton more. I have now sculpted and reproduced two sold-out ball jointed dolls with the third almost ready for release. These days though I have returned to my love for OOAK sculpting and have been creating dolls in paper clay on cloth bodies. My work has found new homes all over the world and I’ve met wonderful doll collectors in places I never even heard of ….who knew 🙂 Because of the people that follow my work I can keep the dust flying!
