Welcome to my website!
I am a designer & sculptor of One-of-a-Kind original art dolls sold through dealers and figurative art galleries.
Most of the figures below would average about 21” tall, if standing. They are sculpted either of all Polymer, or Polymer and air-dry clays over wire armatures. The eyes are glass and the wigs are artist-made of mohair. All of the clothing, accessories, wings, and bases are hand-made and hand-painted by me.
Below are images of some of my most recent pieces! These have all been sold and are in private collections… but I would be happy to consider commission work. Just email, or give me a call, and I will put you in touch with a dealer to make arrangements!
I’ll be updating the gallery and adding new pieces as they are created, so check back often! Enjoy!

I loved the freedom of a direct sculpt that the polymers afforded me… and I’ve been working in this medium ever since.
