Artist Sonia Singh along with her mom picks up discarded and pre-owned dolls in order to give them a new lease of life. Gone is the gaudy, unrealistic make up making way for these little dolls to finally be 'children.' Sonia repaints the dolls faces by hand, molds new shoes and gives them a good general clean up while her mom knits and sews clothes which are more appropriate for little girls.
“My sisters and I grew up playing with second-hand dolls and home-made toys in the beautiful Tasmanian natural environment. I love the satisfaction of repairing and reusing discarded items to give them a new lease on life.”
