This is Ella. I feel my age making these tiny little beings. My eyes, fingers and patience wearing thin, but when they are finished it was well worth it. Ella is just 3 inches tall and made of papier mache and cloth. She will be on Ebay tonight just click on the link at the top right of this page.
So it's been a rough week. My mother passed away a week ago yesterday. Thankfully she got to see her entire family right before, including a phone call with her sister, with whom she was close. We sorta knew this was coming soon, so it wasn't a complete shock, but we didn't think it would happen the day after we all visited. She was down to 72 pounds and couldn't swallow food much anymore. She was in a nursing home briefly and then an assisted living facility in an attempt to get some weight put back on her, but obviously to no avail. She was 78. My brothers, my father and I will miss her every day we are alive.
She loved seeing pics of my little dolls. She was an artist herself. I was happy that she got to see little Violet in person, my last 6 inch doll that sold on ebay. I had to take it to TN with me because the auction was still active. I showed her my doll and she was amazed. She thought she was so sweet. I will miss talking with her about picking out fabrics, she loved to do that for me when she visited and I was making a doll. She had a great eye for color. She was an AMAZING oil painter. I didn't have the patients for waiting for the oils to dry so I always used acrylics.
This is Lia. She is only 10 1/2 inches tall and is just a darling! She is an Izannah Walker inspired little girl using vintage linens and I hand formed paperclay over cloth to create her sweet face. Lia as been painted using artist quality acrylic paints and heavily crackled with tiny little cracks for a lovely aged look. Check out those tiny little fingers! You can visit Lia now by clicking the link upper right of this page.
This is Luisa. She is an antique inspired Izannah Walker style doll She is only 10 1/2 inches tall. She is just the sweetest little thing! Luisa is a cloth doll which I have hand molded paper clay over her head and shoulders. She has separately attached thumbs as the vintage Izannah Walker dolls do. I have weighted her so she sits nicely. All her clothing has been created using vintage linens. I have used quality artists paints on her head, arms and legs. Luisa has been heavily crackled with very fine crackling then stained and sealed to give her a very vintage look.
You can stop by and see her on EBAY by just clicking the ebay link on the top right of this page.
Thanks for stopping by...My name is Kimberly and I am an artist specializing in reproduction stitcheries, pen and ink drawings and dollmaking.
I absolutely love dolls by Izannah Walker and Queen Anne dolls. I tend to blend the two styles when creating my little girls.
