Since I was a young girl, I have been sewing and creating. Over the years, I have made just about everything that can be made from fabric from slipcovers and shoes to dolls and wall art. After stumbling upon a book by Miriam Gourley, I was intrigued by the tiny, individual fingers that I saw and was determined to try. One doll became many dolls. Soon I was drawing my own patterns and designing my own dolls. Dolls became my passion. My professional training as an occupational therapist has given me background information on human anatomy and how the body moves which has directly influenced my art.
I live in Baton Rouge, Louisiana with my husband in our almost empty nest. We have three children, two of whom have embarked on their careers and the third who is still in college. That leaves Venus the cat to cause trouble at home.
