With her love of creative play Merrilee Liddiard has been immersed in making magic out of the simple things since childhood. She grew up watching her mother cast porcelain, stitch together cloth bodices and paint miniature eyes and cheeks onto handmade doll faces. Merrilee has consequentially had a passion for dolls ever since...though her creativity extends well beyond her love of doll-making, to her illustrations, and other whimsical projects found in her books and on her blog MerMagblog.com.
