About Brooklyn Dollworks
I started Brooklyn Dollworks in 2012 as a showcase for my work. As a native New Yorker and youngest of seven children, there was always something to do, paint, sculpt, play, sing or just observe. My hands were never idle, and they still aren't. Every experience, meal, journey, emotion, or dream, consciously and unconsciously shapes my work. Whichever medium I work in has to lend itself to that expression. I trained in costume design, sculpture, wigs and dance, and through the making of Art Dolls I have found my full expression.“
Future plans for Brooklyn Dollworks include the addition of other mixed-media figurative artists. In the 21st century digital world our mission is to promote artists whose work in the traditional methods expand the boundaries of the art. Lending support to these artists through public showings at juried shows and craft fairs, and through publications and online outlets.
