October - Maddy Norval
"Magweno Art Dolls started in my final year of University studying Illustration in 2011. Art dolls always captured my imagination with their versatility and distinct anatomy, and I always love getting my hands dirty! I illustrated a short story called the "Laird of Morphie" and the interest sparked from that led me to starting my own business making and selling art dolls on commission.
I'm now at the stage that I can creature limited edition lines of cast fantasy creatures and customise the colour palettes. It works well for both sides, I can have a high turnover and unleash creativity, the customer can get a beautiful work of collectible art for an affordable price. "
