Location: Pittsburgh, PA
Family info: Married 23 years to Tom, my biggest supporter. One blue-eyed dog, Max (our little boy!)
Media Used: Worked in porcelain initially; now prefer polymer clays for detail.
Type of Dolls: Character and portrait, every age (14"-child; 20"-adult)
How long: I've been sculpting dolls on & off for about 10 years; recently got serious about it after taking a 2-year hiatus to complete my master's degree. Discovered all I want to do is DOLLS for my life's work (currently Plant Engineer - safety, environmental, workers' comp, facility maint. --- what a difference!)
Professional credits: Member of PDMAG (Professional Doll Makers Art Guild); Member of AADA; Jack Johnston's Master Doll Artist Course.
Comments: I have a complete passion for dolls and am determined to make this my complete career! It's wonderful to share various experiences with other doll artists!!!
