I have been making fabric sculptures since January 2010. I believe that many of the current black dolls or African American dolls do not capture the sensual beauty of black people. Some people are offended because all of my male and female fabric sculptures have penises and vaginas. I have been teaching Human Sexuality for nearly a decade and I can't imagine leaving this area blank.
I am the author of five books, psychology professor and single mother of two young adults. Making soft sculpture dolls have opened up a new side of being. For the first time in my life something is coming through me, not something that I am chasing. When it is time for my sculptures to be born they haunt me until I bring them into existence. Enjoy!
