Whimsies are the joint creations of
Marita Winters and her sister Barb
Marita sculpts the baby dolls and Barb sews the custom cloth bodies and clothing.
|Marita was formally trained in commercial art. She worked as a freelance designer and artist for over two decades, eventually co-founding Winters Illustration & Design with her husband Monty. Marita has returned to her early love of sculpting, concentrating on the realistic portrayal of tiny babies in sizes from miniatures to life size.|
|Barb Gerde has joined Marita in her doll-making venture. She is a talented seamstress with many awards to her name for her quilts and designs. She worked for a theatre as a designer and seamstress for several years, designing costumes for plays. She creates clothing for the miniature dolls and sews the cloth bodies for all the doll sizes.|
|You can see some of her outfits that are available on the Barb Gerde Designer Collection page.|
