My name is M Louise. As in the letter M and Louise squished together.
Welcome to my little creative space in the internet. This page is all things paper dolls, paper puppets or possibly you, whatever we want to call it. I have found my artistic passion in creating handcrafted paper dolls and I am so glad that I can share them with you.
I often times find myself thinking in stop motion. My favorite movie is Fantastic Mr. Fox, so it is only natural for myself to think in little burst of movement. One day I watched my daughter, a tiny dancer, she swung her arms around her head, she pirouetted, she leaped, she was just brilliant. I tried to figure out when, and where, and how her little body moved. I imagined her as a little paper doll, brads for joints, sculpted layers of hair on her head, a tiny version of herself that maybe one day she could play with. From there, and many prototypes later, I have finally perfected the craft!
