I make folk-art dolls using old clothes, wool, jewellery and other recycled odds & ends. Over the years I've enjoyed making dolls for friends and loved ones to mark significant milestones and experiences in their lives. I'd be happy to make you a doll. Contact me for details.
I made this colourful character as a raffle prize for the TREATS & TREASURES craft fair.
I had so much fun making this dollie for Mavis' 5th birthday! I love her reversible skirt and sassy attitude.
I was commissioned to make a doll in the likeness of Camilo Cienfuegos who was a Cuban revolutionary and side kick of Che Guevara. VIVA LA REVOLUCION!
This doll was inspired by fabric from Thailand. My mum took me on a trip to South East Asia for my 40th birthday and I made her this doll to thank her. I so admire her adventurous spirit. Love you mumsy. xo
I made this little guy for my beloved step-father Walter when he was struggling with cancer. Walter Loved purple and I loved him.
Kitty & Gaston
These guys were made specially for the HOMESPUN PUPPET PARADE which takes place in my neighbourhood every summer.
I made this doll for my friend Kathryn Aitken in 2011. Kathy is an incredible women who's been instrumental in co-creating the Transition NDG network. She inspires me with her dedication to creating community resilience and her gift of bringing people together.
Ode to Mrs. Ravanel
This doll was made for a dear friend's mum. The painting on the left is a miniature version of the first painting her mum ever made. An ode to her artistry to mark her 90th birthday.
This dollie was made with love for ENN.
The color purple combines the stability of blue with the fiery energy of red. Purple is the color of peace, wisdom, magic and independence. The amethyst stone on her heart encourages the healing process.
May this doll bring love and light.
Carley the sock doll
My favourite thing to make with old socks. Love the sassiness of this creation!
