Old Souls whispering

Another dollmaker whose work fits into the primitive/folk aesthetic is Shari Enge, of Old Soul Doll Company. I have seen her dolls at the 10 Women Gallery in Venice and they initally appear deceptively simple, but quite large in scale. But they have an aura about them. Fine details and surface treatments really make them seem ancient, or at least part of a continuum through the ages, and they draw you in to looking again. She was featured in Craft magazine Volume 4.
