Since I was child I have been obsessed with dolls. Paper dolls that you could cut and then set and dress in a million ways. I would take old JC Penney catalogs an cut the dresses for my dolls.
Inspired by those memories, I created this art doll. It started out as an original watercolor painting, made in ink and fine artist's pigments. Cut it by hand, added eyelets for joints and she was ready.
Belle is wearing a beautiful yellow dress and a cute bow on her curly brown hair. She practices dancing ballet every day, because her dearest dream is to be a ballerina one day.
The doll measures approx. 9 inches tall, made with artist's grade watercolor paper. She can be placed on a frame to keep this original work of art safe, or displayed in a place where she invites you to gently play with her.
