This is Fiona. Fiona has a lovely, well-mannered family.
|Well, almost. Sometimes, she and her little brother, Ziggy, get a little wild on their bicycles.|

blue butterfly in the center. Fiona and Ziggy pretend it's real and try

inches tall when sitting. Her curled tail helps her to sit up. She
is made from 100% cotton fabric which is painted with acrylic paint.

molds were used. She is a completely original and one-of-a-kind art
doll. Fiona is signed and
dated, and She is sealed with matte varnish for protection and
preservation. She is meant for display only.|

are also made from my own design and patterns, as is the hand
embroidered butterfly in the center of Fiona's quilt. The quilt

Fiona also comes with a hang tag, a certificate of authenticity, and a copy of her story.

instructed in sculpting by the very talented Max Bailey, my studiomate,
known for his fine craftsmanship and artistry in creating his amazing

me. I hope my dolls will help spread as much good cheer as his
