About Sylphae Doll Studio
I have always loved and been fascinated by dolls. I remember as a kid my parents would have to give me time out from my Barbies, because I would carry them around with me ALL the time.
When I moved out of home in my early 20’s the first thing I did was start collecting barbie dolls! I started sculpting dolls in my teens, with my mum, using polymer clay and the Robert McKinley method of cloth bodies. I have won ribbons in competitions for my dolls!
I stopped making dolls in my 20’s, and started learning how to make 3d models using various software, finally settling on Blender.
I have desired to own a ball jointed doll since I first learned of their existence. I have followed doll faceup and doll artists for years but never really had the time to pursue it.
In early 2022 I took some much needed time off work (I have been running my 3d and digital art business for 15 years) and thought, maybe I will make my own ball jointed doll! I already had the 3d printer and the blender knowledge, so I sat down, did some sketches and started modelling my prototype, Eve.
You can read about my dolls on my blog, and follow my process on Instagram.
