Exciting News!!

I just received the Spring issue of Art Doll Quarterly and my doll
has been published! They had a contest asking for fairy tale dolls so I decided to make Baba Yaga. 

I hand dyed the fabric for her body and face. The pin she is wearing
came from Estonia. My grand mother was a world traveler. I hand painted her eyes. She was a labor of love. I remember reading
Baba Yaga stories to my children when they were young.

I want to thank the publishers at Art Doll Quarterly who selected
my doll for their magazine.
