I have always loved dolls. Since I was a child I would make dolls out of almost anything I could get my hands on. I had always dreamed of creating a doll that looked like a real baby. In 2004 I took a sculpting class with Jack Johnston using Prosculpt. I loved it. I was hooked. After a few years, I started making OOAK Art baby dolls. They remind me of those precious moments with my own children. There is nothing as tender as a newborn baby. I love to spend my days studying pictures of newborns. It is amazing to me to see how different each tiny face is. It is my goal to bring to life those memories of our tiny babies that we hold dear. My hope is to create a Treasure that can be cherished for many years to come. I have been honored to be given a few awards from 2008 to the present. Most recently, I received.

What an honor that was for me. I have been married for almost 36 years to my wonderful husband, Lon. We have six children and Thirteen adorable grandchildren. I first started to sculpt newborns when my first two grandchildren were born just 12 hours apart. I wanted to sculpt their tiny beautiful faces so I would never forget how they looked as newborns. My pictures of my own children and those of my grandchildren are my favorite models. My dolls can be seen at
