I am happy to present Alice, she will be ready for eBay this week. For the last half year I have worked on my dolls body parts to give them a more lifelike and natural flow with a new new double-jointed hip. See more pictures at my facebook page: www.facebook.com/dollsbeyondart/
Alice is amazing! She is just so elegant and those hip joints enable her to pose realistically. She has the sweetest face and I adore her nose! Her dress mask and shoes are simply gorgeous. I can't wait to see more of her

Of all my dolls Alice is the doll I have spent most time working on, it felt like a process that would never end. It took a long time before Alice and I got to know each other, she was a mystery (in many ways she still is) like a closed book so it's a great moment, finally to be able to present to her. Thank you so much M and to the rest of you I am really glad that you like her.
I do love pretty dolls but dolls with character have the edge. I've been studying the photos again. Alice's face, such secrecy and intrigue is captured within those expressive features, it's all in the eyes. dollsbeyondart dolls each have a mystic aura that can no photo can show, my Gaiae and Levanah both have it. The dolls are amazing, and their beautiful costumes, shoes, and jewellery are the icing on the cake.

To make a doll I continue to work on the doll and its accessories till it start talking to me, a habit I've developed coming from a family of artists and in working with and being surrounded by art my whole life. Making a painting each layer tells which direction to continue so to calculate how long it takes to finish a doll is hard. The doll have to find her own form and her own expression. There are many amazing doll artists out there putting their heart and soul into their work, I feel a lot of respect because I know how tough and at times lonely a process it can be. M. as you probably know, I am very grateful that you appreciate and understand my what I am doing, it means everything to me. xxxx
