Comments: My life seems to have always been full of creative endeavors, but I didn’t discover doll making until 1990. Since retirement from a full-time secretarial career in 1996, I have been able to devote all my time and energy toward doll making and the operation of my FabricImages Gallery & Studio where I now create and display the dolls for sale. To date I have made more than 500 dolls, most one-of-a-kind, but also including an Artist’s Limited Edition Series of 110 luncheon souvenir dolls for the 1998 UFDC Convention along with a companion doll which has also been opened as a limited edition of 110. Although my primary medium is cloth, I am also excited about learning to sculpt polymer clay dolls studying under the tutelage of Jack Johnston and June Goodnow.
