My name is Lynn Marie and I live in Northern California in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. I work with children in our local Waldorf school as a Behavioral Technician in grades Kindergarten through 3rd grade and teach art electives. Before my family settled here, I lived in Chicago, Indianapolis, Boston, NYC, and Tokyo as a professional Broadway dancer and performer. After I retired from dance, we started a beautiful family and moved out West.
I began customizing Blythe in 2018. I primarily work on authentic Blythes and enjoy sewing for dolls on many different scales. I love chopping up Blythe’s hair into razor cuts long and short, and highlighting clothing from me and other designers. I often use my own 3 children’s expressions for more extreme carvings. I love giving detailed face-ups that resemble real skin. Most of my dolls have semiprecious stones and crystals for their pull strings, it’s part of my process to take time to hunt for these metaphysical gems so each doll has its own healing and personal qualities attached. I really pour over every detail and take time to finish each doll, I want the new home to feel the process and love put into each creation. I will occasionally take commission orders but prefer having the doll take its own course, so I ask for full artistic freedom with minimal details dictated. If you’re interested in my work, you may contact me via social media. Thank you for your support as I continually grow as an artist.
