I began making dolls at the start of the first covid-19 lockdown out of boredom. I experimented with some wire and wool I had laying around. The dolls were very simple, without details or defining features. Over the last two years, they slowly evolved to what they are now. I began using them to express myself and my feelings, often when I couldn't put my feelings into words. They've been my main creative outlet for two years now and I wouldn't be the person I am today if I didn't make them.
