GatoModa dolls

Medium: Textiles
Location: Home Studio - 56 Cohasset Street

I make handmade fashion cat dolls. Each one starts as a blank muslin canvas and ends up with her own quirky personality and style. I get to use my favorite fabrics and notions--and have an excuse to keep collecting. The doll-making process satisfies my impulse to create new things by hand and experiment with colors, textures and techniques. The larger scale of the dolls gives them a real presence, and they make me smile each time I see them.  I hope they bring whimsy and joy to the world!
