Loss of a dollmaker

One of my doll making mentors has passed away. Susanna Oroyan, was only 65 but had had cancer for the last few years. Her books of which I have four, opened up the world of doll making to me. It is hard to pick my favorite book. Anatomy of a Doll, had such a different approach and a gallery of dolls I had never seen or imagined. Glancing through the pages today, reminds me I have forgotten a lot of different things I could be doing to improve my dolls.
