-Talk us about you: Who are you? How did you started with dolls collection?
I am K6, or Sophie, if you would prefer to call me by my name. I was born in 1983, and I spent my first seven years in my mother’s library, avidly flipping pages of books all day long, I also loved to spend my spare time drawing in the back room, and it is probably this period of my life that made me realize that I wanted to write, draw, and tell stories.
I have many passions. I make short films and I’m part of a association in my region, I also am passionate about martial arts, Kung Fu in particular. I enjoy practicing a little bit of everything, as I’m a big kid who loves to play. I love to write and organize murder mystery parties. I also love all kinds of role-playing games and board games
I discover BJD 10 years ago and fall in love with a Narae, so beautiful and seem to breathe !
I was quickly conquered and addict
-Tell us about your work
When i made my first doll I was keen to create a cute and poetic universe, and that led to my creating my first ball-jointed doll (BJD), Nymphette. Then i create many dolls and try each time to made something new and do not lock me in a style but I think you recognize my work anyway >-< i made forest creatures, Flower spirit, animals, Nymphs… i want to made a positive and fancy characters with emotion and life in them; they resemble children in fairy tales.
Each time I create something I am driven by a desire irresistible to give life to the character in my head.

-How many years of experience do you have collecting dolls?
Hi collect doll since 10 years and have a beautiful collection who made me happy every time I see them, I made dolls since 5 years.
-What was your inspiration when you started working on dolls?
I studied graphic design. I was especially passionate about illustration, and I wanted a job where I could draw. I had the chance to make illustrations for many french compagny. The company where I stayed the longest was called Astrocenter; I was illustrating all their astrological products, especially tarot. I stayed there for six years until the company was sold, putting an end to my services there. I took advantage of my subsequent free time to suggest themes for books that I could write and illustrate for publishers’ youth markets and make dolls because it was something I wanted do try since the beginning. My inspirations are multiple, I read many books and comics, love illustration and collect art book too …
-Have you got any plans for future? Which?
Right now I’m working on Squirrel, she is a lady doll. I wanted to make a sexy character, I also am working on a nipnip (which is a series of little funny animals with fruit on their heads), that are articulated, and Chou, a baby caterpillar.
