I've cut and pasted the parts about me into a page that you might be able to read here (click on the image to get a larger version). The article is eight pages long, and the author interviewed a number of artists. Many thanks to Stephanie Finnegan for the lovely article. I'm thrilled at the honor!

Here is my latest customized Sasha doll.
This is what the original Harlequin looks like, next to the customized doll. She's interesting because I think she's the only Sasha with highlights painted on her eyes.
Her eyes are painted in shades of brown and ochre. I've always been fascinated with the early "yellow eye" Sashas made in Germany.
Here is a photo by Michael O'Brien in England of an early Sasha with ochre eyes. I love the dark line above the eye, something I've tried to interpret in this newly customized doll.
She is stamped 1984 / 1466 on the back of her neck. Please let me know if you have any questions, and feel free to leave comments!
