I am doing it !

Finally after years of drawing faces, trying all kinds of techniques I am creating what I personally call "My Yesteryear Dolls"
I have always and for ever loved antiques of all kinds, I grew up with them ,surrounded with them, My parents on the side  did Antiques had a small store and did all the shows,

What fun as a kid, My sister and I were truly educated from the beds we slept in to the glasses of milk we were drinking from, Not just the history of the year where they came from , our Mom and Dad made sure we under stood what it was meant by saying heirloom for generations to love respect and enjoy.

The Love of what I call and always will "YesterYear" runs deep in my heart, I have always wanted so badly to create  like these wonderful so very talented doll makers that can  create like Izanna Walker, The Colombian Doll and more..

Izanna Walker I have a very special Izanna from a very special doll artist ! But for me I just can't do clay over cloth.
But I can create  dolls from Yesteyear! Baby Rag Dolls and Pioneer Type dolls so on,
Of course I will always and for ever create my Raggedy s Folk Art with a pinch of Prim and whimsical on the side !! They hold the child in me and lets me come out and play !
in progress hand painted face more yet to do :)
In progress also.Pencil face drawn.
