Here's what I'm working on now - a mini Izzy. She needs thumbs, and to have her limbs painted and then set into the body covering. Slowly, slowly, ten minutes at a time sometimes, she is coming together. The description of my dolls as "rare" came from another doll-maker who was teasing me about my progress. I'm happy to say this girl is coming along.
I was talking about studios with another artist on the phone, who is thinking about moving to Maine. She said, "I imagined you had this huge studio setup."
I laughed at that, and said, "Nope. I have a very small 8 x 10 room that fits a sewing table, an ironing board, a set of bookshelves and fabric storage."
It's truly a kind of "cockpit" for creativity. The painting table is in the hallway in the basement leading to this room. It's not magazine worthy. But I am so thankful to have it, as in my last house I had to use the dining room table and pack and unpack stuff. ~ Dixie Redmond
