Making HerStory celebrates the vast and diverse forms of creativity offered by women artists. With this being the sixth year of Making HerStory, the creators have found a renewed energy among many of the artists in the Making HerStory family. This year’s theme is The Era of Our Dreams, exemplifying a new energy arising from the ashes of the last decade’s struggles, into a new era. Making HerStory 6 is about collaboration, growth, and sustainability.
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.
