Meet Julie Campbell, a self-taught doll artist Her forte is hand sculpting beautiful OOAK (one of a kind) 1:12 scale miniature dolls which are inspired by history and fairytales, real life and legends.
Julie's sculpting medium is polymer clay. Each character is hand sculpted and painted with great attention to detail, then clothed in appropriate costumes which are all designed and hand sewn by her. Each art doll is unique . Although she will sometimes repeat a particular character, no two dolls are ever the same .
Each character is sculpted from polymer clay in 12th scale and one of a kind. The dolls clothes are hand sewn from my own designs. I always choose natural fabrics, silks and cottons which hang beautifully on miniature dolls. Period dolls are dressed in historically accurate costumes. The dolls wear hand sculpted shoes, many with leather uppers and cotton shoelaces.
Every doll is totally unique and takes hours of work to complete.
Her creations will bring life and charm to your miniature world .
In Julie's words, "I am constantly learning and improving my skills and delighting in every step of the journey. When not making dolls, I love life, my family, my pets , chocolate , whiskey and books..... often all at the same time!"
