Alison Dezotelle, as a young girl growing up in southwestern Connecticut, spent her time in fields behind her house pretending she was a lost princess from a Grimm's fairy tale. Since then, she has pursued a life of drawing, illustrating, painting, and most recently making polymer and cloth art dolls. The human figure has always been prominent in her art, be it life drawing, clothing a person or sculpting a face and hands. Combining a love of fabric with a love of drawing, as well as a warped sense of humor, Alison has come up with doll designs that continue to evolve as new ideas emerge.
