I was born and raised in the UK and moved to the US in 1999. I am the Mother of five children, two step children and Grandmother of two. I live with my husband and our little girl and four crazy little dogs in Indianapolis, IN.
I spent many years teaching and creating Salt Dough craft and was lucky enough to sell my work in Craft Fairs and Craft Shops throughout the UK.
Upon arrival in the US and the discovery of the many amazing craft and hobby supply stores here, I found Polymer Clay and an obsession began and I have never looked back!
Early in 2001, I sold my very first Fairy on eBay , she wasn't very good, but I was jumping for joy at my first creation and sale and eager to buy more supplies and create more ...and more and more. For several years I sold under the name Whispers in the Woods, but in the past couple of years I decided to drop my Studio name and move forward, with my own name instead.
I adore antiques and will spend many hours shopping for vintage lace and trims and unique props for my creations.
Many hours of love and care go into each and every one of my dolls and I hope each one will be loved and treasured for many years to come.
I am truly honored when a collector chooses to purchase one of my pieces , and it's because of them that I am able to stay home and home school our little girl.
My journey into the OOAK Art doll community has been a wonderful one, and I have met many wonderful friends, some, I know will be lifelong...and I know I have many new friends still to meet along the way!
