Simone Young's Moon beam doll

Simone Young

From her earliest memories, Simone Young has been driven to create art.

“I am multifaceted artist. Painting, Print maker, Sculptor, Installations, Photographer, and most recently, Art doll maker.
I began create art dolls 1 1/2 years ago, when my mother came to live with me so she could receive the best cancer treatment for her illness. My husband and I transformed my painting studio, in a living space for her. As a result I was no longer able to paint, that’s when the first art doll was created.

These little creatures allow me to indulge in a world of whimsy and escapism. They allow me to explore intense emotions, playful expression, curiosity and push the boundaries of my imagination. I love the multi faceted dimensions of creating the dolls, from sculpture, painting my passion for antique and vintage textile, every aspect of their construction.”
