Artist's thoughts on dollmaking:
Dollmaking is like bringing something already there into the world so everyone else can see it too. The dolls I make seem to want to exist, and they have opinions about who they want to be.
Which sounds a little weird, but there have been times when I've thought "oh, that would be cute!", but they definitely seemed to be saying, "Um...yeah. No, thank you". It feels like an unspoken dialog rather than trying to force things.
Sometimes I get stuck and don't know how to finish detailing a doll. I imagine they're not really sure who they are yet. That's ok. We all go through that. But when a doll starts coming together, especially if the process was difficult, it's very satisfying.
