Get to Know

I have been sewing and sculpting for many (many) years and have had the great pleasure of working in the costume shops of some amazing companies such as Henson Associates, Cirque du Soleil and Nickelodeon; and have learned so much from each one. When I left Cirque to raise my daughter, I started making art dolls combining clay and fabric of three characters from La Nouba, which Cirque sold in their boutiques around the world. Then I was hooked on doll making.
The clay boxes originated in 1984 from a school assignment to make a a box in pottery class. A year ago I revisited and updated the idea to what is in this shop.
