I make one of a kind Art Dolls and Mixed Media Objects,
inspired by Fairytales, Folklore and memories of childhood.
My favorite materials are vintage fabrics and antique textiles,
crackled clay and little treasures I pick up on my travels,
telling their own small stories and secrets
To find available pieces, please visit my shop
Animals are an endless source of inspiration for me,
especially wolves and owls, representing the wise omens of the wild woods and skies
Fairy creatures, Witches, Ghosts and Spirits are also among some of my favourite subjects
F A I R Y T A L E S
From early childhood,
I made it my occupation to lose my mind in Fairy Tales.
Especially the beautifully illustrated books by the Brothers Grimm and Anderson that lived on the book shelves of my grandmother's house, were a life inspiration.
I dedicated a lot of my childhood to dressing up as the fantastical characters from my favourite Fairytales, and reenacted many stories and tales.
To this day I love to immerse myself in a private world of such magic and mystery.
One thing I search for when making my dolls and figures,
is to once again be enchanted.
Enchantment that can be felt for life and the world around us,
is something precious.
I try to stitch that feeling into my work,
and make that magic tangible somehow so I can share it with others.
It is said that dolls are little representations of different elements of ourselves,
and I believe this to be true.
You could say they are portraits of our emotions and imaginings,
offering us a mirror into our wild and childlike souls
Besides making my my sculptural work, I also love to draw and paint.
Often my paintings are inspired by my dolls and figures, or vice versa,
and my canvas can be 2 dimensional, or 3 dimensional
On some occasions I create bespoke pieces too,
such as Memory Dolls and Heirloom Dolls.
These are dolls made in collaboration with you.
Your ideas, stories and memories have a central role in the process of making such pieces.
Family heirlooms and personal items can be incorporated in these dolls.
