My name is Jacqui. Thank you for visiting my website. I first became interested in creating dolls in the fall of 2013. I discovered the work of a local artisan while on a trip to Arizona. Inspired by her pieces, particularly her use of color and materials, I found myself intrigued with the process of creating artistic doll art.
The creative process involves the use of primarily re-purposed materials. After finding unusual fabrics, beads and jewels, I begin combining them with thought to complimentary colors, and textures, making each doll a one-of-a kind handmade, and intricately designed piece. As the process develops, the personality of each doll unfolds.
I’m a previous resident of the Chicagoland area, having escaped the Midwest winters. I now live in southern California. My free time is often spent exploring estate sales, garage sales and resale shops, on the hunt for the perfect fabrics, jewelry, feathers and any other hidden gems that I might incorporate into my dolls.
Partial proceeds from all sales will benefit The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
Thank you for your interest in my story and I welcome any and all questions.
