About the Artist

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.

      I have so admired your work. I’m not exactly a doll person but your color and expression in these dolls has caught my eye. It is your craftsmanship that really caught my eye… Your banners too…wow! Do you ever sell your work or work on commission for the larger banners?

      • Thank you. I do sell my dolls and banners. All the banners that are on my blog have been commissioned by different churches. For the banners, I do work with the church on the design requirements.

    I am on session at a Presbyterian Church in Iowa. We are looking for three large banners for our gym. We want the three to symbolize love, grow and serve. We have some ideas, but no sewing ability. Do you make them to sell?

    Thanks
