Comments on dollmaking: What really hooked me on dolls was their history. I'm fascinated by that and many people don't realize how much history there is. Dolls preserve the culture of an era; thet serve as little images of families and people in their families. Dolls being made today mirror what we perceive as life today. I am leaving a piece of me behind, a piece of my art and knowledge on this earth.
