About the Artist

My name is Vynette van der Heijden, and I live in Port Elizabeth, South Africa.

I started making 1:12 scale porcelain dolls in 2003, after being inspired by various miniature doll artists on the internet.

I was fortunate to be able to attend workshops with Dana Burton (Dolls of Romance) and Helena Reijnen (Fashion Dolls in Miniature) from Belgium.

After these classes I felt so excited and inspired that I started creating my own dolls.

 There is nothing more relaxing and enjoyable than designing dolls in my studio which has a beautiful view of the ocean.
