She makes dolls in a variety of mediums--carved wood to sculpted wool. And they're all extraordinary. And compelling. And it's the oddest thing to sit in her living room chatting about kids and movies and politics and food and all the while her hands are busy and at the end of this every day activity she has created magic.
Where she truly shines is in crafting faces. Her dolls have always had personality, but the more adept she becomes at mastering the subtleties that make a visage human, the more each carefully revealed face has not just personality but life.
I could write ten thousand words, but the photo of her latest creation should speak for itself. Come, be awed with me--here is Spring. Doesn't her lovely expression hold such secrets!
Update: I forgot to mention that lovely Spring is anatomically correct beneath the flowery dress! She's just beautifully proportioned. And no overly trimmed landing strip for her! This girl has a good old fashioned delta going on : )
