One and Only Dolls
Once again I'm indebted to my doll making friends for the heads up for another lovely site.
Renee Coughlin's One and Only Dolls website features beautiful galleries of repainted fashion dolls, many as fantasy characters. Also she shows explains many of the alteration and repaint techniques she uses, and lists some useful links.
One of a Kind Art Dolls, figurative sculpture, playline dolls, altered dolls, repaint artists, creative costumers, reborning, vintage dolls, collections, classes, new doll products. What's new out there in the many splendored world of dolls? A new place to visit every day, I hope, chosen by me, just because I like the look of it.
In a career spanning more than thirty-five years I have been a costume, scenic and lighting designer and worked in every kind of theater from community to educational to “broadway” style, both in Australia and the US. I was a freelance Production Designer of independent films before repurposing my life as a homeschooling mother and textile artist. Now I craft and write - "Crafting for a Greener World" column for Natural Life Magazine, screenplays and musings about creativity, alternative education and mindful parenting.
