"I can not remember that there ever was a time in my life where I've [not] modeled anything. In this sense, art has always been a natural part of my life. My work is characterized by a mixture of natural realistic portraits, fiction and myths. When I work on a new object, I am interested in finding out who it is, where it comes from, what it has experienced - like or dislike. In this way it is possible for me to create a stand-alone, all-encompassing nature. Not to copy life, but it is my personal vision to create new and strengthened.
The vitality is at my work in the foreground. The viewer should get the impression that he is facing an animal with its own personality. To deepen this impression it is possible to move the body and change with every change of posture also be reflecting the fact emotion." (autotranslated. source)
Sabine's dolls are hugely varied in theme and execution. From ghostly and ethereal to fantastic, they are all beautiful! She often modifies the doll's face and body sculpt to incorporate fantastical elements. Some jewelry and clothing is enameled or painted on, which preserves a sense of realistic scale. Her dolls are 22 inches (56cm) tall and have double jointed knees and elbows. Some have single jointed knees. Her dolls have glass eyes. Most of Sabine's dolls seem to be costumed and OOAK. Definitely check out her website, that is where most of the photos are and the most recent dolls are not Flickr. I am enjoying following this very creative artist!
