Donna Moore

Donna Moore grew up in Alpine, in the Big Bend Region of Texas. She began her interest in sculpting and working with clay while attending Sul Ross State University. She later relocated with her husband and three boys to the Austin, Texas area where her interest in dolls began. As a beginning collector, she attended many of the local doll shows. This is where she met Marilynn Huston and was so taken with the beauty and creativity of her dolls on display, immediately enrolled in one of her workshops. This literally changed her life. Her first doll "Mother of Braves" was created at this workshop. Donna began with full-skirted figures then moved on to complete mixed media doll sculptures, both standing and seated. She has done over 30 dolls, each one-of-a-kind doll is sculpted in polymer clay with meticulous attention to detail. Her best known works are her "Old World Santas". She loves showing the love and the "wise beyond years" look in their faces. The excitement of seeing the doll come to life and take on their own character is beyond words. Finding just the right finishing touches for each one is the challenging part, but also the most fun. Donna's studio is in her home in Cedar Park, Texas. She has shown and sold many of her dolls in the Austin and Georgetown area.
