  • Wilma Simmons ~ Empress Wu Designs

    I am a doll maker and textile artist from Newcastle NSW Australia. My art celebrates diversity, with a harmonious mixture of techniques, materials and ideas. I work a lot with recycled materials and found objects, and am probably better known for art created with sticks and tea bags.

  • Sherrie Meyer~Conchy Gem Dolls

    My doll making journey began 25 years ago through a need to share storytelling and emotion in a hands on medium. As a trauma counsellor I also create dolls with children to enhance their recovery process. I work mainly with cloth, clay and fibre to create figures whose stories embrace the power of finding what gives them strength and courage in their life.

  • Dina Goebel~That Creative Feeling

    I’m an Australian sculptural artist with a life-long passion for all things creative, surreal and inspiring. I have been an artist since childhood, generally inspired by nature and the collecting of things. More recently I have begun to explore how modern consumer desires are impacting women and the façade we wear as a result of being molded, a new area to explore.

  • Mary Hermans

    I have been a doll lover, since I can remember. I fell in love with art at a very young age. I have been sewing, drawing and painting, for as long as I can remember. Although sculpting dolls is fairly new to me, it has had a huge impact on my desire to create.

  • Alison Jackson~Alison Jackson Art Dolls

    Coming from my love of Alice, my dolls come from a world where enchantments are just out of sight, strange Gothic creatures do exist, and wonder can abound? My dolls are for collectors who are looking for the unusual, each one is unique. They are handmade with no moulds and a great attention to detail. I hope each one of my dolls brings a sense of charm, a little piece of wonderland.

As figurative artist I’m a sculptor and fine art photographer.I started sculpting in 2015, now I think of nothing else! My dolls and fantasy creatures have a head and limbs sculpted in polymer or paper clay on a wired cloth body. I’m inspired by books loved as a child, nature, and by anything that thrills me!

  • Sam Crow~Curious Creatures

    Sam Crow resides in England. She studied mural painting at Chelsea School of Art & theatre design at Central St. Martin’s. Her creepy-cute art dolls combine her creative urges costume, theatre, sculpting, story telling, tinkering & playing. Each figure is entirely hand made, using clay over a wire armature, paint, wood, found objects, various textiles & textile techniques, a sprinkling of imagination to depict the characters she has met, seen, dreamt of or imagined – little people with large personalities.

  • Silke Sordyl~Fairyfelt by SiSo

    We moved from Germany to Illinois in 2012, when my husband accepted a job offer here. In 2014 I began felting figures which eventually evolved into the “Gieblinge”. The Gieblinge are little gnomes living deep underground, each one has a particular story which describe their line of work. I am self taught and enjoy the learning process and the challenge to bring my ideas to fruition. . For me, felting is relaxing and sparks my imagination.

  • Rhonda Whitledge~Sculpture by Rhonda Whitledge

    Rhonda has had a compulsion to sculpt since early childhood. It is the only activity that has consistently brought her joy. The mediums used have never been as important as the physical and spiritual connection that comes of taking a nondescript blob of material in hand and through manipulation give physical form to the creatures that inhabit the theater in her mind.
