About the Artist

Elle, an International Guild Miniature Artisans Fellow in figures, sculpts imaginative "little people" and portrait dolls. What sets an Elle doll apart is its lifelike expression and demeanor.  Each doll makes a statement of its own, with its unique personality, and style.

She was blessed with the gift of having an artistic talent in drawing, and painting at a very young age.  After many years of exhibiting her work, and teaching  art, she was introduced to miniature dolls at a local dollhouse shop in  Manchester, New Hampshire.  Elle soon began sculpting her own character dolls with realistic features and emotions.  "Inspiration comes from everywhere, including my imagination," Elle says.  They just keep evolving.

Creating dolls is a life-long adventure, and she hope to make exciting and innovative 'little people' for many years to come.
