I first came across Mimi Kirchner’s work about two years ago through the Flickr Embroidery Group. I was blown away by her Tiki soft sculptures, her tattooed men dolls and her delicate female and male dolls. I’ve followed her work closely ever since, and am continuously amazed by her artful skill and brilliant attention to detail, not to mention, her warm and generous personality. The Storque at Etsy features Kirchner in a pieced in their Handmade Portrait series that gives wonderful insight into her background in art, lifelong love of dolls and how her habitual collecting lends specials details to all her work. It’s given me a whole new love and appreciation for her artistry!
