Hello, my name is Laurie Sisson .
has been a large part of my life for many years. I invented "The Foot"
which allows dollhouse dolls to stand without doll stands and look more
lifelike because they can bend at the knee and hip. All of the
individually sculpted dolls I create are made with The Foot. You may
have seen them in various issues of "Nutshell News", "Miniatures
Showcase", and the Calendar.
Making One Inch Scale Character
dolls led to making smaller scale dolls. Things I wanted for them were
not easily available so, I made them for myself, then sold them to
others who also wanted them. The Foot was one of these products (13 sizes) and so are the half-inch scale hats.
have always worked in multiple fields: painting, sculpture,
photography, graphics, and miniatures. No matter what you
learn, you can always find ways to use that knowledge. It seems that
for me, one thing leads to another. Miniatures uses everything.
