Backstage with Blue...
(insert obligatory welcome message here!)

What was that? You already feel welcome? Fabulous. Let me tell you a little about myself.

1. I'm Native American; Brotherton of the Fires of Narraganset. Yes, I *do* find the word "squaw" to be demeaning and insulting, especially when applied to apple products.

2. I'm an artist. Oh, couldn't you tell? I do doll art, oil paintings, watercolors... My true love is, of course, doll art... Fashion doll art, if you please.  Give me brush and an inspiration, and I'll grab one of the 100+ dolls in my closet waiting for a new chance at life. 

3. Okay Okay, I admit it.  I also love performing in theatre.

4.  My credentials? Actually, that's easy. I've worked on various comics including Exiles by Pentegram Komix and Graphix and a self-published webcomic, Battle of Angels. Uuuh... really there are too many to name here.

 

One of A Kind Dolls

I got into fashion doll art a few years ago as a hobby. Since then I've done... lords... 100 dolls?  I've lost count. 

Now I realize that I have found my niche: I think about them all the time, and I am always trying to improve my technique. 

Each of my dolls comes with a new name and a certificate of authenticity. I even have a special mark I put on them to identify them as from me.


I love my babies...

 My doll art dream is to appear in a magazine, or ... dunno... something.  Wouldn't that be keen?

When it comes to the art itself, I'm trying to achieve what I can only call "doll sculpture" with fashion dolls.  Sure, one can do that without the use of molds armed with their imagination... but if you could see the forms in my mind when I see that Barbie I'm saving for just the right moment...

I'm getting better, but I feel I have a ways to go. In the meantime, I love the babies born along the way.

DISCLAIMER:

I reserve the right to refuse refunds. I do not normally do that, but if you are rude to me or patronize me in any shape or form, my right will suddenly become accessible. I will still try to make the bid right, but I will suddenly become very difficult to deal with. Keep this in mind if you have a valid complaint, because the way I see it: people who want freebies are the ones who become abusive.
