BENEdolls - American Folk Art Dolls & Figures are inspired by antique papier mache dolls, these one-of-a-kind figures are sculpted in papier mache painted and detailed. Some dolls have moveable heads, arms, legs and removable clothing. Bene makes the clothes for each doll using tea dyed fabrics, antique and vintage lace and trims. The dolls have an antique old world quality and their clothes reflect that. The artist searches antique stores and flea markets for antique doll clothes to incorporate into outfits for the BENEdolls. Each BENEdoll has its own look, and no two are exactly the same.

|“Making these figures allows me to combine my passion for painting and sculpture. Some of my work like the ‘dancing red devil’ and ‘melon head girl who loves watermelon’ and other tongue-in-cheek characters have been called outsider folk art. I formulate stories about each figure to help me with painting their facial expressions and creating their costumes.”...Bene|
