Art Dolls and Angels with Joy Hellman
To the delight of our visitors, Southern Pines Artist, Joy Hellman, demonstrated the creation of her Art Dolls and Blessing Angels at Artist Alley on Friday night.
Joy began making dolls when she was a little girl. She recalls using left over fabric from her mother’s sewing projects. She also watched her create porcelain dolls and the Victorian clothes for them.
As an adult, Joy developed an interest in doll making after her mother passed away. It was then that she fell in love with fabric and fiber, and she began making dolls on a regular basis. Today, her creations are collected internationally
Joy also creates custom dolls and angels for her sentimental collectors. She's made angels from girls' dresses, boys' shirts, wedding dresses, and other memorable fabric. These creations provide a wonderful way to honor a loved one.
Holiday orders are currently being accepted. Please order early, as the number of orders that Joy accepts for the season will be limited.
