Ankie Daanen Art Dolls

Ankie Daanen has a passion for dolls with a soul.

For more than 35 year I am a professional dollmaker, teacher and pupil, and almost every day I work on my dolls and try to make the ultimate doll that tells everything I want to say. I like my dolls to be sad, happy and even mystic. That they give you the feeling to have a life and a soul and I hope that you recognize some of that in my dolls. I try to reach an intimate connection with the human spirit. And perhaps that transformes the doll in a piece of art. I hope so. The basic of dollmaking is craftmanship, but it goes beyond this. Dollmaking involves expression and recognizing emotions, along with high-quality craftmanship and materials. That means for me "Dollmaking is a never ending story".  ~Ankie Daanen
