Diane lives in BC on beautiful Kootenay Lake. Diane was introduced to the art of doll making in the late 1980's. Doll making combined two of Diane's hobbies, her love of painting and sewing. The porcelain dolls are poured into molds, fired in a kiln, and then cleaned. Next comes the creative part of painting features and designing clothes. Most of the dolls made are antique reproductions.
