Denise Roberson – Little Sistahs Wit Tudes

LoveI can blame all of this on my mother. When I started the 7th grade, she said, “It is time for you to make your own clothes.” So, she taught me how to sew. I was hooked. I loved making my own clothes. It gave me an over whelming sense of pride. My Mother and I spent a lot of time at fabric stores. I liked touching all the fabric, I still do.

Many years later she asked me to take a doll making class with her. I had no idea creating dolls would become my passion. I have taken classes, attend workshops, and read a lot of magazines and books on doll making.

I am often asked about what inspires me; A lot of ideas come to in the morning, as I make the transition from sleep to wakefulness. Some ideas are serendipity in action, the objects I use just happen to be on the table.

I believe in the power of women and some of by dolls are a celebration of women. Some are fairy tale like characters living in the forest with the animals.
