  • 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.

  • Francesca Loi ~ Little Swimmin Machine

    My name is Francesca, I live in London but I am Italian at heart. I am a self-taught dollmaker that started her journey in 2018, and since then I never turned back. Creating has always being my passion since a young age but I ended up having a scientific background. Unhappy, I decided to go back to study and I was lucky enough to be accepted at a school for Frescoes Restoration first, before being offered a job in a studio working on Painting Restoration when I moved to London later, where I worked for several years. Feelings, what surrounds me, and little found treasures are the principal inspirations behind…

  • Liudmyla Bezusko

    Dolls have been my passion for many years. I made a first doll for my daughter when she was young, and her excitement about it inspired me to learn more about making dolls. Later I invented my own style, a hybrid technique between a sculpture and a painting. I would better call my creations a textile sculpture then a doll. In addition I always try to give them a personality, to express the character and emotions – things which fascinate me so much in people.

  • 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.

    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.

  • Linda Ehrenfried~Charm City Originals

    I am an ooak art doll maker, sculptor, and painter. As a doll maker, I am also a fashion designer, a wig maker, a cobbler, and a seamstress. I make every part of my dolls starting with the armature, and ending with the eyelashes. I believe each doll should have its own story, and I try to infuse that story into them so you can see it without explanation. I hope you like my dolls.

  • Myriam Powell~Myriam Powell Designs

    I’ve always been surrounded by handmade. It was a big part of my childhood and a way of life growing up.Those childhood memories inspired me to initiate the art doll making journey. I love gothic art and working with dark colors and find a lot of beauty in imperfection and the creepy looking.
