begin your unique journey

My textile art-dolls are meditative, emotive pieces, each telling a unique story. When you commission a bespoke doll from me, we will take a journey together and I will create an artwork that reflects your inner world – I can capture a moment, a feeling, a season…for you.

Through a series of prompts, I will invite you to share with me what it is you would your doll to represent, what feelings you would like her to express. For example, you can request the mood, the colour palette, the media used, the size.

I invite you to join me in this deeply personal process...start the conversation by completing the form below!
