I am an author, illustrator, and maker of heirloom dolls.
Vance Studios was born out of my love for crafting unique characters on paper and with textiles. I enjoy the challenge of working with different fabrics, paying close attention to color, texture, and weight. True to my illustration style, I pay careful attention to facial features, striving to maximize emotion with minimal strokes.
All Vance Studio dolls are handmade, designed by me, and crafted utilizing carefully chosen materials from around the world.
