This morning’s Mini Monday focusses on one of our dollmakers. You may have seen her doll at the top of the Storque on Saturday being clutched by a shiny, smiling child. Learn more about Ulla!

I was born in Bad Kreuznach, Germany. (Try and pronounce that if you can hahaha). Lived and studied in Berlin (WEST) Germany. Worked in a gallery there. Helped to take the Wall down in 1989!

Moved to Colorado in 1995. Worked in a Gallery and painted in oils for a while. Some print media too.

Started making dolls in 2001 and never stopped…I started making dolls when I had children. I was afraid they would grow up without the same homemade toys that I grew up around. My mother was a great seamstress. Sadly she passed away from cancer in 2004 and my world has not been the same since. I miss her and see sewing as a way to stay connected to her, my homecountry, and German culture.
