The Essentials Art Dolls

. . . . . 
Unconventional portraits that feature heartfelt words about those who bring meaning to our lives.

Imagine a new way of creating a portrait of your family, friends or that special someone with one-of-a-kind art dolls that capture with words what you see with your heart.

Like a picture, they hang on the wall, offering a unique way to affirm who we are, how we feel and to celebrate the special people in our lives. 

Each doll is unique - crafted with hand-dyed fabrics & lettering, embellished with hammered wire. Available in two colours: Stone (a neutral suitable for any decor) or Rainbow. Choose from a selection of ready-made dolls OR order a doll(s) with a customized quote(s).

Please note: The Essentials Art Dolls are works of art intended to hang on the wall. They are not toys. They have small parts which could become a choking hazard and are therefore not to be played with.
