The artist


What a pleasure, when, from the deep of myself I give rise to a doll.

One of them comes from a book or a movie, another an historical inspiration and a last one from my imagination. All my dolls are realized with great fineness in the work and the accuracy of details.
I love
to realize each doll with respect of the history of each one, and use only high quality materials in relation to the original materials

One of the great momment in my creation, is to give them a real life and spirit. My process consist in erasing the industrial make up of this trademark dolls, repaint a new face and I add eyelashes, to make it as ''human'' as possible. Then I modify hairstyle and that's how the relooking begins

All the clothes are exclusively made for the doll, such as the dress, the gloves, the underwear, the shoes... etc
When she is ready with the new outfit of clothes and her head, I make a jewel meticulously realized in crystal.
After that
, we realize a large amount of pictures, and we choose the best ones. Here, the doll is -almost- alive as Marie-Antoinette, the Empress Sissi, a Sioux princess, and so many more…
For everybody who
, like me, loves....... beauty.

I am Corinne, I am 45. I'm married and I stopped working as a nurse for a while so as to take care of my three children.

I’ve gradually  found some free time to dedicate myself to one of my passions which are dolls, sewing, painting, manual work, and search on old costumes :

the  Artist fashion dolls.

I've really begun with dolls in summer 1999, supported by my family(first supporters!), friends and neighbours, and also thanks to the WEB where one can see so many beautiful things which helps to improve.

I learn how to sew with my grandmoher who is a needle-woman during my summer holidays I spent with her when I was a small girl and teenager, and even still now(thank you grandma Lulu!); and also with my mum's sewing machine(thank you Mum!).

I started to makes clothes for me, for my children, & also for my daughter's dolls; and finally for my dolls!

 I started with one or two samples of existing doll clothes; then I felt able to create my own models, and I'm rather proud of it.

I remove all the face paint and repaint it, I add  eyelashes. I redesign the hairstyle and make an unique dress for the doll. These clothes aren’t removable.


Many thanks to my husband Michel for his support, his assistance for the creation and the maintenance of this website.
