I have an online friend who is glorious a doll/puppet maker. Don’t be shut down by that, she is a doll maker extraordinaire! Her work is totally AMAZING! It is not about dolls as much as obsession to me, even though I doo get lost in her fantasy and could spend days on her website.
She has a page on her website that shows her studio that takes me back to my old days of doing production pottery. To this day I have vowed to never make two of anything again but I do welcome those efforts to get to my art each and everyday.
Organization is my friends middle name! Jars all lined up full of special glazes, doll parts, heads, hands and feet, angora yarn that she uses for her wigs, define this woman of passion.
Passion is the reason I mention her to you because you feel so much passion for your work as I do mine. It takes obsession and passion to do our art despite the obstacles, and by seeing the pics of this doll makers studio I am reminded of that. I LOVE it! I love that in the darkness of her studio, because she works at all hours, it is she and her art waiting to happen. Because of her obvious devotion she creates what is in her heart. Do you know what I mean? I know you do, it is all about keeping that drive alive.
Do check out my doll/puppet maker friend online, I think it will speak to you as it does to me. We don’t have to be doing the same thing to resonate to her but of course sparks are absorbed that we can embrace.

Fantasy goth fairies with a wonderful sense of fashion… that is how I would describe the work of my online friend. It takes obsession and passion to do our art despite the obstacles, and by seeing the pics of this doll makers studio I am reminded of that. I LOVE it!
