I have been blessed with a talent and I love that I can share it
with all of the world...

Born in 1970, raised in New Jersey, I began my life as an artist at age 3.
People and especially babies, have always been my passion and my subject
matter for all of my art.

I am a graduate of Moore College of Art and Design in Philadelphia, where I
majored in fashion illustration. After graduating valedictorian, I went on
to become an illustrator for Campbell's Soup Company where I was an
in-house freelance illustrator. I worked there for 12 years, and many of
the illustrations of Campbell Soup Kids and Spaghettios that I drew,
are still being used today.

In January of 2004 I discovered sculpting!! I had left Campbell Soup
Company to be at home with my toddler, Isabella, and was looking to take my
art in a new direction when I came across the OOAK baby doll category on eBay.
I went to the store, bought some clay, and made my first miniature baby.
I placed it on ebay and had many inquiries. So every day, for 11 days,
I sculpted a mini baby. The 11th sculpt sold for $650 and my new career of
creating life-like babies was on its way!!

Each realistic baby is sculpted from Prosculpt polymer clay. I begin the head
with a tin foil ball and cover it with clay. Then personality emerges from these
layers of clay until it becomes a new baby to love! Every sculpture
is then reproduced in a variety of mediums: Vinyl, silicone vinyl, resin,
and silicone. It has been almost 10 years of doll making and this career
path has proved to be extremely rewarding and fulfilling.

In December 2011, I was diagnosed with Triple Negative Breast Cancer
and my life branched off into a new unexpected direction. After
5 surgeries, chemotherapy and reconstruction, I struggled through
2012. I am now a survivor and strive to help newly diagnosed women by
supporting them through their diagnosis and treatment and recovery.
Please see my Breast Cancer Survivor page for more information. I
currently live in Pennsylvania with my husband and - my inspiration for all of
my work - my three beautiful daughters: Gianna, Isabella, and Aliya.
