This is the first doll I have done in a long time that I actually placed a face on it. I am a bit insecure when it comes to faces, but because this was a commissioned doll and I felt the client would prefer to have a face, I decided to do one. My husband actually liked the face. He prefers my dolls be faceless but I took a risk on this one. The doll is called "Wanda" for a particular reason. It was named by my husband who has reasons for everything!
I am an emerging self taught doll artist who is learning how to improve my craft. I started doll making 3 years ago and stopped due to entrepreneurial pursuits. Now with the help of my mentor Francine Haskins, I am beginning the craft again with much more vigor and interest. Please share this journey with me.
