This is a hard entry to write. A good friend of mine passed away recently, and I would like to share her work with you. Elizabeth Jenkins had a background in theater costume and an amazing talent for drawing and sculpting portraiture. The pictures I’m sharing with you don’t reveal her amazing ability to sculpt dolls of movie characters and historical figures, and you probably won’t be able to see the stunning precision of the costuming and the attention to details like the scale of the hair fibers. But what those of us who knew her will always remember is how generous she was with every technique and how much time and effort she devoted to our local doll club. Our club almost dissolved when she was no longer able to keep us together, but we have managed to persevere, partly in honor of her memory.

So take a look at her beautiful dolls and read her biography on her ODACA membership page. She was someone special, and she’ll never be forgotten.

  1. I have an Elizabeth Jenkins IDMA 2001 convention doll that I would like to donate to a local abused childrens home for a silent auction, but do not know what value to place on this doll. I didn’t realize Elizabeth had passed away. I haven’t been in IDMA for several years now so I don’t have much contact with other artists. Can you help me put a value on this doll so I can let the children’s home know the value. It was a limited addition to about 300 dolls, but I’m not sure of that number.
