Finding a purse is the first step
in creating one of these kinds of dolls. The purse is substituted for the body and adding found doll appendages starts the creativity for this project. Once the basic form is established the rest is created quickly by treasured finds. Influenced by contemporary artists Janet Cooper, Michael de Meng, Chris Giffin and Nicole McConville, all my antique doll works are unique and one of a kind. After all, who wants to attend a dance in the same dress that another is wearing?
