Interviewed for "Not Just Rag Dolls" in November/December 2008 issue of Doll Castle News
Debbie Behan Garrett interviewed me for an article that has been published in the latest issue of Doll Castle News entitled "Not Just Rag Dolls". I along with several other African American dollmakers was interviewed regarding my passion for cloth doll making, process and advice for beginning doll makers. Because I am a beginning doll maker myself, I felt honored to be included as one of the doll makers interviewed. The other doll makers interviewed include: Lornal Paris, Brook Scott and Vista Scott. A photo of one of my dolls "Changing Woman" was also included in the article. Pick up a copy and check out the pages 20-21 and 44 for the full article.
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.
