Colleen Moody is a self-taught doll artist with a love of costuming from the 1700’s to the late 1800’s. From the corset, crinoline, bustle and knickers to the hat, cape and muff, Colleen finds the fashionable style of this time intriguing and exciting. Colleen has a growing library of books on the history of what people wore during this extravagant time. With that information and a studio filled with vintage fabrics, laces, and trims, Colleen creates her one-of-a-kind dolls.
You can find Colleen’s dolls available on her blog and at various shows throughout the year. Her work has been published in Art Doll Quarterly, Somerset Studio, Prims and Marie. Colleen lives in Northern California with her husband, 3 teenage sons, 4 cats and 2 English Bulldogs.
