create" something with his hands, with its heart and its imagination is
really very enthralling and enriching. This
pleasure is doubled when the public appreciates work
finished: the complicity which settles thus between the author and the
amateur pushes with going always further! I selected to make only OOAK (unique
doll) what gives an interest and an additional value to the doll (and especially
I don’t like to remake the same thing twice!)
continue to improve the painting of the faces of my dolls and the quality of
finishing and details of clothing and accessoires.
of my dolls has its face entirely erased and thoroughly repaints hand made
with paintings of quality, according to the style, colors of its
outfit and "character" or of emotion which I want to give it: an
appearance mischievous, serious, moved, sophisticated... I root also of the
eyelashes, of the wicks coloured in the hair, I remake the hairstyles (perm).
My subjects are various inspirations: historical costumes with serious research, the high fashion, but also of the very fanciful things from movies, fairy tales, legends (Brocéliande for example) or simply of my imagination.
draw my models but it often happens that it is while touching or by associating
fabric, lace or ribbon which the ideas are born. But like many people, I don’t
enough of time to do all that I will want!!! nor inevitably the good material to
do it, then certain projects "sleep" a long time before being born!
accessories (low, hats, sunshades...), and jewels are made
and finished carefully in materials of quality. I am meticulous and I
don’t hesitate to remake several times what I do not like! Ilike much to
embroider beads and sequins hand made and recently I make embroidery with the
silk ribbon, I like to invent the pattern much, to see progressing my work and
to decide if finished that I like once or not!! I don’t use never of glue!
doll requires between 10 and 40 hours for its realization including
approximately 4 to 6 hours only for the painting of the face and the hairstyle.
also the chance to be able to present all my dolls on my Internet website
designed and maintained by my husband Michel, it presents a great quantity of
pictures very beautiful quality. Web enables me to correspond with many people
of which some become good relations!These people are, with my husband, my
children and my family, of faithful supporters who don’t hesitate to applaud
but also to review each one of my new creations!! ( I’am also a great success
near the children when I present my work in the schools to them!)
often several dolls started at the same time: to have the impression that I
think longer it, to prolong the pleasure: because it’s during their
development, of the first idea to the last detail that I’am this kind of
pleasure and excitement to see what that will give once finished; I am often
satisfied (but it happens that that likes more the others than me!!) and I waite
impatiently review of my supporters! that does enable me to continue to improve
me, to progress, to have desire for creating… always with this satisfaction
that it does get to me and that it also gets for the audiance…I invite you to
look at.. to like or not…
