When asked about her first doll-making experience Maggie replied:
"I took a class here in Fabius, NY given by Nancy Dennis who taught
polymer clay sculpting. The doll was successful for my first attempt
at sculpting! I was amazed. What prompted me to do this?? I don't
remember now, except that I was wanting to LEARN NEW THINGS!
The name of the doll was "Maggie's Alter Ego". She had red hair and played the violin; she wore a Victorian whites (antique/vintage) dress and sat in a chair. I sold it (amazing!) for $375.
Since that time, I haven't done much sculpting lately, since I
subscribed to Art Doll Quarterly and found SO MANY OTHER WAYS to
create Art dolls! Nancy Dennis is a wonderful sculptor; she has
sculpted pieces all over her studio, but the dolls are not completed
since Nancy does not like to SEW for costuming. So I did one doll
just by gluing all the costumes to see if it could be done. I've
decided I'll have to revert to HANDSEWING for my costumes but
I HATE hand sewing!! LOL....
But I was hooked because of diversity in materials and the creativity.
The doll world has provided that for me."
