Artist Description

The Kewpie Doll – first appeared in Rose O'Neill's comic strips in 1909. They have been embraced into the cultures of both the West and East and are constantly evolving with the times.
I was given my first one when I was about three years old and they have always held value for me in both sentiment and design. I have painted them often and this bronze copy of one is a way of showing their value where it no longer has a cheap body of plastic.
