I have done art of some kind all of my life. Even while obtaining a degree in molecular biology and pursuing a career in science, I still found the time to explore various art mediums. Perhaps because of my interest in science, I love investigating new art techniques and finding out the best way to achieve my desired effect though experimentation.
Over the years, my artistic interests have evolved. For at least a decade, I was involved in creating specialized dollhouse miniatures – unusual items not generally found through mass-market sources. I also created a number of miniature room displays. I had begun to sculpt some figures to use in some of my displays, and one day, I decided to create the doll of a friend of mine who was a popular YouTuber at the time. He shared a video of it, and soon other YouTubers wanted dolls of themselves, too. That’s how Be A Doll was born.
Now over 10 years later, I still love sculpting faces and creating figures that make people happy. I also get to create many of my dolls (at least when the weather is warm) by a lake in the beautiful woods of the Michigan Upper Peninsula.
