Statement

These odd dolls are not something you will find in a toy store. They are hardly something you would buy for a child. They are misproportioned, strangely dressed, and they have a story and character uniquely their own.

Each doll is entirely hand made using polymer clays, vintage fabrics, acrylic paint, and sometimes real human hair or teeth. Each piece is one of a kind.

Beth Robinson began making and selling hand made dolls in 2003. Since then she has made over 300 dolls for fun, for galleries, and by commission. From Alaska to Sweden her dolls have become a favorite amongst photographers and animators, artists and art collectors.

She has received international notice from the magazines: SPIN, "Stuff" in the US, "Maxim UK" and "Maxim Hong Kong," "Rue Morgue" in Canada, and "Nokia CP" in Turkey. Her dolls have appeared in galleries throughout the USA as well as internationally. She is currently represented in the Netherlands by cabinodd.com, in Berlin & NYC by Strychnin Gallery, and in Vermont by The Lazy Pear Gallery

"Now here's a doll May Canaday would make if she watched The Brothers Quay Collection while listening to Nightmare Picture Theatre and hadn't slept in a week. Weird, misshapen and tortured, these unusual handmade dolls are...definitely not for children, unless you want them to have nightmares." -Rue Morgue, 2005
