Lady With A Past

Historically Inspired Art Dolls

I have been creating dolls for 20 years. I started making porcelain dolls and then graduated to sculpting my own one-of-a-kind creations from cloth and paper clay.

All of my dolls are inspired by the past; I specialize in period costumes using vintage materials when possible. My favorite era is the Civil War, and many of my dolls are costumed in clothing of that time, but I have designed dolls dressed anywhere from Marie Antoinette to the late 1800's.

I also sell just the costumes, for those who have dolls that need a new wardrobe.
