November Dolls Magazine!

The November Dolls Magazine is now online, and I'm featured in an article titled "Extreme Makeover: Artists show off their doll transformations" by Stephanie Finnegan! She told me in an email that they had so much positive response to the article last year that they wrote a follow-up.

Above is a scan of my part of the article (click to see it larger). Featured is my "Butterfly" doll complete with wings. Go to the Dolls Magazine online edition to read the whole article.The Makeover article starts on page 16; my doll is on page 20.

And don't forget to visit my Etsy Shop to see my available dolls!

Kiandra and Demetria: two new customized Sashas now on Etsy!

Demetria and Kiandra: customized Sasha dolls
I've just finished two new customized Sasha dolls! Been a really long time since I've done any of these, and I'm pretty pleased with the way they came out.  They're both repainted, rewigged, and I made their dresses with fabric carefully chosen to complement their coloring.


Demetria is a customized Sasha doll with long strawberry-blond hair and eyes in shades of brown and gold. Her name refers to Demeter, the Greek goddess of corn and the harvest.

You can find here for sale here on Etsy with more information:


Kiandra is a customized Sasha doll with long black hair and eyes in shades of very pale blue. Her name means "water baby" and "magical" and I think she has somewhat of a magical look to her. 

Here's her Etsy link where you can read more:
Here's an image of what Kiandra originally looked like
 I hope you like them!

Two new custom Sashas on their way...

Late at night, finishing up a couple of customized Sasha dolls! Here's a photo of them prepped and ready for paint.... I plan to photograph them and put them in my Etsy Shop tomorrow (Tuesday). Been too busy to do much with dolls recently, but thought I'd do a couple of these because my Sashas will be featured in a forthcoming issue of Dolls Magazine!

Puppen & Spielzeug Feature

My "Timepiece" doll was featured in the the April/Mai 2011 issue of Puppen & Spielzeug magazine (page 13)! The best part is that there's a nice long article about Akira Blount two pages after this one.

It's been a while since I've made any art dolls, but my desire to make art remains. I really do hope to get back to artmaking soon - life just gets in the way sometimes.
