designing book covers for indie writers!

Hey everyone! Happy New Year!

I haven't been posting much these past few months because I have been delving into some new creative mediums, such as book cover design.
As an avid reader, I have been having a great time trying my hand at designing book covers for indie writers who are looking for affordable book covers for their self-published novels.
I create everything from traditional romance to erotic sci-fi!
If you yourself are interested or know a writer who needs cover art, check out my new portfolio page on selfbpubookcovers.com! I am always adding new art almost daily as ideas come to me.
Let me know what you think! I always welcome constructive feedback!

My Victorian Dollhouse Home Tour

Today I thought I would share my Victorian dollhouse.

This is the only large size dollhouse that I own.

Close to twenty years old, the house will most likely need a decorative overhaul eventually because much of it was done before I really knew about creating miniatures with archival techniques and materials in order to stand the test of time.

Enjoy the house tour!

My Mini Dolls of the Past

I thought I would share some of my hand sculpted 1/12 scale miniature dolls from the past. I haven't sculpted a doll in years. Looking at these photos, it makes me want to try sculpting again. Never really happy with how they came out, I have a need to keep trying until I'm happy with the results.

All the following dolls are now in private collections.













Enjoy!
