Having lived abroad for much of my childhood, I gathered an appreciation for multi-cultural images, colors and designs. I drew upon an old love of weaving and a new love of handmade paper to create images and colors that materialize in the form of one-of-a-kind dolls. Each piece is hand-woven using hand-dyed and commercial yarns and fabric brought to life with a handmade paper mask.

Every plant and animal possesses a unique essence, which is interrelated with the lives and spirits of all others. These one-of-a-kind sculptured dolls embody fragments of the spirits of the clan of mankind. By holding these pieces you are connected to all cultures back to the beginning of time.
