ABOUT THE ARTIST
"Throughout my life, I have always done creative work. I grew up in New York and moved west 10 years ago. At the age of 39 and raising a young child, I realized I needed another outlet. For me, that was Roller Derby. Then I got to thinking... “why not take all these cool socks and create art !” Well thats what I did. I started sewing all my derby socks into funny, creepy, cozy creatures. And I must add Derby girls love SOCKS!!!
So that began the venture into the Sock'em Down Dolls Universe. My dolls do take on a variety of experiences I've lived through, the bizarre people I have encountered and the interesting counter culture of our society in general. I have found a way to embody all those elements and call it art from an essential texile we call socks. We must admit we all have an inner child living inside that will never grow up!
I hope you all can at least take pleasure in these little things I create. Look at them, laugh or even buy one for a friend, a family member, or even your own enjoyment. I have a great time making them take great pleasure in knowing they will make people react in someway or another."
Each doll is signed by the artist and waiting to be adopted into your home or Derby team!
