Today's featured artist is a wonderfully unique art doll maker. I was intrigued by how her creatures just ooze personality and feeling.

1.What got you involved in Polymer Clay?
I had just recently discovered Art dolls and was so intrigued by them I had decided I wanted to try to make one, so I researched the different items people used to make them. I found that polymer clay kept coming up. I looked into all the different types and went with the strongest one recommended, cernit.

2.What is your favorite thing to make? Why?
I love making art dolls above and beyond. I feel great satisfaction when I finish up a new art doll, like wow, I made this, cool! I do occasionally make decapitated head magnets and monster brooches just to mix it up.

3.What makes polymer clay a better fit for your products than other mediums?
It allows me to sculpt without having to have a kiln, all the colors offered, and that it takes to acrylic paint great, so I can really detail my piece.

4.What is your best advice for someone starting out in polymer clay?
Honestly, just buy a some and play around with it, that is how I learned. Also research the types so you pick one that fits with what you are planning on making.
