Greetings and Welcome to Oak Hill Studio dolls. I create entirely hand made original dolls from various mediums inspired by the Victorian era, mourning, cemeteries, and 19th Century spirits.

Under the Sea

I was browsing the blogs of fellow doll makers, admiring their amazing talent when I saw a posting about an under the sea doll swap. I let out a little scream of delight before promptly covering my mouth to avoid the disapproval of my neighbors and contacted the swap organizer. I have been lusting after pictures of 19th Century Coney Island style side show acts like the one advertised above, so I thought that this would be the perfect opportunity to try it out with one of my dolls. I am so excited to begin that I already purchased the fabric for her clothing and have made a few sketches. I will be posting updates on my blog here and there.

Also, I have been hard at work creating two new mini dollies and I am happy with the results so far. I will be posting pics of them tomorrow.

  2. Love your dolls, they remind me of Black Eyed Suzie's, Sarah Farber's dolls.
    Are you going to sell through Etsy or another venue?
