A viral video on Facebook brought to my attention this cool woman, Sonia Singh. She picks up dollies at thrift shops; dolls that look like glamour stars, sometimes even with glitter makeup. Her goal is to humanize these play things and give them a new lease on life. Sonia is an artist, illustrator and scientist and science communicator based in Hobart, Tasmania.
I just happened upon a dolly at my local St. Vincent de Paul store this week.
My first, and only, attempt at a Tree Change Doll. It was REALLY hard to paint the new face!
Here is the doll after I removed the manufacturer’s painted face.
