New to blogging...but here goes!

Hi Everyone!
Welcome to my blog page! My name is Kori Leppart-Butts and I am a professional Doll Artist as well as a sculptor and teacher. After a lot of encouragement from friends and customers I am finally starting to blog! This page is dedicated to my sculpture and my original art dolls. Turtle Child Studio is named in honor of my first born, my son, who changed my life completely...he was slow to come into my life...I didn't have him until I was 37 years old, hence the "Turtle Child". Both of my children ( I now also have a daughter) are a continual inspiration for my work. I love children and children's stories, such as fairy tales and folklore. You will see most of my Art Dolls are children, although I do make adult sculptures from time to time.

I plan on using this blog to communicate closer with my customers, fans and students. I will post work in progress photos as well as some tutorials for the beginning OOAK (One of a kind) artist. I hope you enjoy my work as much as I enjoy sharing it with you!! To view more of my work visit www.turtlechild.com , or to register for a class visit www.thatcreativeplace.com .

Welcome to blogland, Kori! It won't be long until you feel right at home. I find blogging fun and relaxing and I discovered I really enjoy wriiting - who knew LOL! Your dolls are wonderful - I used to scupt miniature dolls, but the teddies took over. Take care and have a lovely weekend,

Thank you so much for the welcome Brenda! It is funny to me that you started sculpting miniature dolls and are now onto teddies...I started out just the opposite! I started making Teddy Bears and then discovered polymer clay in 1997...the dolls then took over!! Lol! I still make small bears now and then to go with some of my Art dolls. So nice to "meet" you and thanks again for the warm welcome!--Kori
