I caught this little fairy mid-flight! She is actually the first set of parts I strung together and painted with watercolor just to see how everything looked. I wanted to paint her very very pale. The results please me very much! China painting is becoming easier, and stringing is getting easier. My next doll is a new skin tone, a more yellow tone that I'm going to try blushing it with a warm brown, paint dark eyes, black hair- totally different direction. This little lady has found a home! My first little one to leave the nest!

Please leave me feedback, comments, I love comments! I am still learning this process, learning blogging, photography, etc. I hope to improve on both as much as I can. Tell me who are your favorite doll artists, or just artists. I love to see what others are doing.

Thanks for following!


  1. I know sometimes it can feel like surely no-one looks at your blog, and getting feedback that as an artist you are so thirsty for, is sadly sometimes like getting blood out of a stone.

    But keep at it, and I think there is nothing wrong for asking directly for comments, sometimes people just need the encouragement to know that their views are actually wanted!!

    This little girl, who started out simply as a "test piece" has sure blossomed into a beautiful little character. The green eyes and fae-like brows define her little personality so much, she is delicate and ephemeral.

    You have been pushing yourself so hard, and it is so amazing to see all this come together so beautifully.

    You should be so, so proud!

  2. Ooh, this one is my favorite so far? Any chance for bigger photos?


    My flickr page has lots of photos.

  4. Ah, I see now whee her name came from. I mentioned in my comment that it was wonderful to see her blossom from spare parts into an ethereal and whimsical little fae....

    Blossom is precious and beautiful in real life too.
