My main body of work is figurative, currently employing a series of dolls to convey a certain message or personality.
Dolls and figures have long been used in the arts, where they usually come in full-scale static renditions, with realistic detail to mimic the human figure as closely as possible, to be revered and admired. I prefer to use dolls that are semi-stylized, wherein they are based on the human figure, but miniature in size and straying away from the constraints of producing accurate minute detail. The intentions of my craft lie elsewhere.
At a young age, little girls use their dolls as a vehicle for their emotions, to live through experiences that are too far beyond their reach at the comfort of their imagination. This instinctive behavior, which has never left me, is what urged me to choose dolls as my medium.
