I first started making porcelain reproduction dolls in 1989 and then sculpted my first doll in 1990.
Soon after, I began designing dolls for an Australian company called Dolls From Down Under.
I also made molds for reproduction mold companies in the USA and later designed dolls for the Home Shopping Network. After many years in the industry, I decided to take a break from doll making.
In about 2004 or 2005, I discovered Resin BJD's and began sculpting again. Initially, I made small numbers of limited edition dolls and cast them myself but became allergic to the resin.
I found a new factory, set to work developing my own resin colours and allowed the factory to use them except sunkissed.
Sunkissed was a recipe I spent a lot of time on before getting it just the perfect shade.
I allowed the factory to use the other colours as long as Sunkissed was only used for my dolls.
The factory was very small at the time so I recommended it to fellow artists and it is now one of the main factories in use today.
I was recently awarded the Dolls magazine Lifetime Achievement Award, which to me was the highlight of my career!
