Donna Sims


Here is the lovely work of Donna Sims, ODACA member. Many of her dolls and goblins are costumed in leather through a fascinating process, cuir bouilli. I love her use of color, combining bright, but still natural, hues with neutral earthy tones very subtly and delicately.
Her figures have so much character, and are featured in a number of fine art galleries. Seeing inspiring dolls of this caliber, appreciated for the art that they are, uplifts all of us who are working with dolls and figures as an avenue of artistic expression.
