Strange Dolls...Not For Your Child?!

Have you guys heard of Strange Dolls before?

What are these strange creatures?

These odd dolls are not something you will find in a toy store. They are hardly something you would buy for a child. They are misproportioned, strangely dressed, and they have a story and character uniquely their own.

Each doll is entirely hand made using polymer clays, vintage fabrics, acrylic paint, and sometimes real human hair or teeth. Each piece is one of a kind.

Beth Robinson is a self-taught New England artist who has been making and selling hand made dolls since 2003. Although she found success with her oil paintings, her life was transformed when a friend introduced her
to Japanese balljoint dolls at Pygmalian Galleries ( From that moment she realized that taking her characters off the canvas and turning them into actual little people would be the best way to express herself. She is now a prolific artist with collectors across the globe.

Robinson's dolls have been featured in the magazines: Art Doll Quarterly, SPIN, "Stuff" in the US, "Maxim UK" and "Maxim Hong Kong," "Rue Morgue" in Canada, and "Nokia CP" in Turkey, "RIP" in Russia, and "Nordic Vision" in Norway.

Her dolls have appeared in galleries throughout the USA as well as in England, The Netherlands and Germany. She is currently represented in the Netherlands by, in Berlin, London & NYC by Strychnin Gallery, and in Vermont by The Lazy Pear Gallery

"Now here's a doll May Canaday would make if she watched The Brothers Quay Collection while listening to Nightmare Picture Theatre and hadn't slept in a week. Weird, misshapen and tortured, these unusual handmade dolls are...definitely not for children, unless you want them to have nightmares." -Rue Morgue, 2005
