My name is Jo Hards, self representing artist, EBSQ member and creator of Strange Little Girls. These unique, Gothic and bohemian art dolls range from cute and creepy Gothic rag dolls to ethereal fairy dolls. Each OOAK doll is hand made, by myself, here in North West England. My work includes Goth girls, retro boho dolls, vampires, mermaids, angels, ghosts and faeries, and anything else which pops into my imagination. All of my cloth dolls are made to original patterns. No animal derived materials are ever used, so all Strange Little Girls dolls are suitable for vegetarians and vegans. With every art doll, I include a signed certificate of authenticity.
Art dolls are listed as they become available in the Strange Little Girls shop. Every doll listed is a one of a kind original and will not be repeated. This means your doll will be completely unique. Cloth art dolls take many hours to make, and are often snapped up very quickly, so if the store looks a little empty at times, please do keep checking back, as more dolls will be added soon. Also be sure to check the Strange Little Girls blog for details of upcoming auctions, exhibitions and other events.
Please note, these art dolls are collectors’ items only. Due to the delicate nature of the hand drawn, needle felted, and hand stitched detail, they are not intended for children under the age of 14. They are not toys.
When I am not making cloth art dolls, I love to paint and draw. In recent years, I have worked mostly in acrylics, although I sometimes work in other mediums too, such as graphite, coloured pencil, pastels and ink. My paintings feature faeries, mermaids, vampires, Gothic girls, ghosts and Strange Little Girls of all kinds.
