"Making dolls, to me, is the natural progression of being dissatisfied with just drawing. I have spent my childhood and education drawing, hearing about, earning a degree from and living art, mostly whimsical and sometimes "a-little-out-there" illustration. After realizing that I would never be happy leaving my characters on the page, and tending to enjoy the doodles and the process more then the finished polished work, I let them out.
I have been happily sculpting for a while now and love to see my techniques improve and fingers grow more nimble with every doll I give life to. I love to gather inspiration by searching out talented artists and have spent a king's ransom on fabrics, nicknacks and treasures I find, everything has a place and plan. What I plan to sculpt and what decides to come out are usually two very different things, but not for lack of trying. Things just have a way of coming out by themselves, as if they are preexisting and just choosing to come out at the very moment I pick up a lump of clay."

"I am often called a Curator of Enchantment. I feel that Enchantment offers, in her very essence, inspiration. It is that serendipitous coming together of the unexpected . . . a tiny orange mushroom on the forest floor, a circle of young redwood trees forming a cathedral space, a flash of silk caught by a branch . . . I believe in Enchantment in her highest form. Not as an escape from reality, but as a window into what is possible in that fertile and complex world of imagination."
