Hi, I'm Michelle and I collect crazy dolls. Sometimes, I paint them too!
My specialty is fantasy collector's dolls. My art is a balance of realism and fun, and leaning toward fun. I use a variety of professional art dry paints, clays, and epoxies in my creations. I enjoy experimenting with new tools and techniques.
As part of my commitment to being environmentally conscious, I practice the 3 R’s: Reduce Reuse Reborn. This means that I try to incorporate pre-owned items into my artistic process. The layettes sent home with my each of dolls will always include some pre-owned pieces, and at least 10% of the things I make will include pre-owned parts. These practices reduce waste and give items that might have been thrown out another chance to be used. I hope you join me in doing what you can to protect planet Earth 🌍
Another thing that's important to me is keeping the doll artistry honest. I do not support any company that uses stolen materials to create their dolls. I only buy authentic doll kits.
Keep Portland weird,
