An Early Dixie Redmond Doll

Back in 2007, when I was a fairly new doll maker, I made this Izannah Walker inspired doll, which is now being sold on Ebay. It was one of my first attempts at making a clay over cloth doll and maybe my second or third attempt at an Izannah doll.  Ah, the beginning of a quest!  You can see more of the images from 2007 here:

In the past seven years I have become a better sculptor and painter.  But the path to being better was through making these early works.  The last time one of my early dolls showed up on Ebay I bought it, thinking I would resculpt it.  But I can't afford to keep doing that.  ;-).  

This doll is BIG, close to 30"!  If you're interested in the Ebay auction, you can view that at this link:
