If you have been following me you know that I am enthralled with winged creatures…taking flight.


As many of you may know, my art is not only about the beautiful techniques but also of the symbolism. I love the Moth for she has great faith in all around her and most importantly…in herself!

The Moth never questions provision.

She has complete faith that all of her needs will be met.

In class, I will not only be discussing various techniques but also my philosophy and symbolism to add another “layer” to your experience with me. I will show you how to create needlesculpt her face insetting eyes that we will hand paint. Her face, neck, and arms will be softly variegated using various paints.

To compliment her painted body, we will piece together beautiful fabrics of your choice! This is a wonderful time to use those favorite fabrics that we all have been saving for that precious project! I will also share with you my signature topstitching found in many of my original pieces!

This class is best suited for intermediate-advanced-master dollmakers.

I am excited to bring this art piece to you!
