Katchina Caricatures

Katchina Caricatures

I am sometimes asked where my inspiration for my art dolls come from?
Well here it is, my Grandmother was a friend to the Hopi Native American tribe,
and when she died they commemorated her with a ceremony and a set of “Kachina” dolls..

There are some missing links (and missing dolls) in my family tree which point possibly to
some relation, but I will never know … as my mother was born out of wedlock, in the state
Arizona, in 1923… and there is no one  left to tell any tales.

So the ‘Kachina dolls’ became my initial inspiration to create these custom and person-
alised ‘Art Dolls’.

My custom creations start at 475€ and up for a single character, multi media, one – piece
soft sculpture 18″ Art Doll.

My work, is currently on display at the Uke Boutique in Amsterdam and I am available
for custom contracts by appointment.

There is a 50% deposit and design consult with 6 weeks estimated delivery time
per character ‘Art Doll’. Crazy Orphelia makes other smaller, more affordable and
even softer creatures starting at €45.
