Here’s another creepy/Goth inspired doll artist. Michelle Steele is known on Flickr as Darksidedolls, and the title is a fitting one. A quite versatile artist, Steele offers paintings, jewelry and needle-felted plushies as well as hard-media art dolls on her Etsy site. Although she makes well-sculpted fairy-type dolls with a Goth twist, I have to confess that it’s her creepy ornaments that captivate me. Made from a wide variety of media including papier mache, Apoxie Sculpt, porcelain, and earthen clay, these quirky figures sometimes incorporate purchased doll heads. They’re a great mix of creepy and cute.

Like many modern doll artists, Steele makes use of a plethora of Internet sites, including her personal page, a blog, an Etsy storefront and a Flickr account.
