It’s that time? Already!!!

Today is December 24, 2019. Christmas Eve. Yesterday was Halloween. Now how did that happen??

All My Children?

  Over the years I have made any number of assemblage dolls. In typical fashion I’ll start with a basic idea…like a spice can…and then go from there adding and subtracting found objects until my doll comes to “life”. Almost Frankenstein-ish!!

As with everything I do, I tend to… Continue Reading
