A love of dolls inevitably led me to trying my own hand at making them! I am most interested in a freestyle approach utilizing recycled fabrics from estate sales, thrift stores, and supplies already in my possession. Experimenting with hand-drawn patterns and fabric tying has resulted in two types of rag dolls to work with. Unique details based on what I have before me moment by moment are then sewn and hand stitched on the fly , bringing each doll to individual life.

I also enjoy capturing images of the world around me with a digital camera while walking my dog. I have photocopied some of my favorite prints and made them into cards of various sizes.
