Beyond the Valley of the Shadow of Dolls

I inherited a bunch of dolls from my Mom and my Aunt. Of course when I was a wee lass I loved these dolls. I had some on them up in my room, others I was only allowed to play with when Aunt T was visiting. There are cloth ones, and ceramic, and other weird materials (I think one is paper mache…). So they are in boxes. I can’t bring myself to part with them to just sell them. I’m not really so much a display dolls decor, so I have decided to recycled them into my own art. I have been wanting to play with art dolls for a while- but I’d thought I would make the dolls. But now…. now I have a whole resource of dolls. 🙂

Rebecca Cramer, raised in Oklahoma City, OK, had her first job in design, layout, and printing of concert posters for artists like B.B, King, Bobby Blue Bland, and Wanda Jackson at her family’s offset and lithography business, Colorcraft Poster Company. Her career history includes editing and managing the review process for The American Ornithologists’ Union’s magazine The Auk, as well as teaching English at the secondary and post-secondary levels. In 2008 she completed a Master’s in Applied Linguistics (TESOL) at Oklahoma City University. One constant has been Becca’s love for the arts and her penchant for creating, and she approaches design and construction from an artist's perspective. She has worked such diverse media as silver-smithing, collage, and found-item art. She loves repurposing things others throw away into something useful and beautiful. Early on, Becca displayed a passion for makeup early, when at the age of two she broke into her grandmother’s lipstick stash and applied lipstick to herself, the vanity, and the walls. In June 2012, she moved to Denver to become a makeup artist. Under the name Becca Be, and Fetch, her work has appeared in several fashion publications, including Dark Beauty, Jute, and Kai’outi magazines. She has also worked with designers for Denver Fashion Week, and with ADCD’s Paper Fashion Show (both as artist, and Production Designer).
