LaurieLenzANGELdolls's Profile Picture
Laurie Lenz
Artist | Professional | Artisan Crafts
United States
Family members can attest that I was born with a paintbrush in one hand and a doll in the other! I have wanted to be an artist since I could hold a crayon. In my teen years, I had great aspiration to be a Fashion Designer and attended classes at Perkins Art Centre, University of the Arts and Philadelphia College of Textiles and Science.

I hold a Bachelor degree in Graphics and Photography, and was trained at Drexel University, and Moore College of Art and Design.

I worked in the music business on the art end creating album cover designs, photography, t-shirts, promotional packages, and one of a kind portraits. I have also worked as an Art Director and Graphic Artist for a international toy company, in the Product Graphics Department, and blessed to be involved with the graphics for several of Disney's Little Mermaid doll products.

Laurie Lenz ANGELS Doll Studio features One of a Kind Dolls, Repaints, Face-ups, Enhancement, and Reroots. Laurie has created thousands of one of a kind dolls and doll accessories since 2006. Featured Artist in Haute Doll 2008, and Doll Customizer Magazine in July 2011.

Commissions welcome for repaints, faceups, clothing, jewelry, wigs, reroots on vinyl dolls, hairstyling, doll restoration.

About ANGELS Fantaisie wigs

Fantaisie wigs was launched in January of 2009, and has sold close to 400 wigs. My wigs were featured in Fashion Doll Quarterly Summer 2010 issue. Wigs are One of a Kind, and for the most part are very avant guarde. On occasion, I may surprise you with a classic hairstyle, but I prefer shock value. I live for color, depth and lots of texture!!

God's honest truth....I dream about wigs. Back in January of 2009, I was looking for an alternative to using mohair because I'm very allergic to it. I loved the look of it, though. I began to experiment with other fibers. My first Fantaisie wig was born of a dream I had, and I figured people would either love it or hate it. (I don't think there is any in between. I'm aware that they aren't for everyone. Variety is the spice of life.)

I use a wide variety of materials to create my wigs: saran, kanekalon, nylon, angelina, firestar, mohair, lambswool, faux fur, bamboo silk, banana fiber, wool, merino wool, corridale, sari silk, alpaca, llama, angora, tussah silk, bfl wool, alpaca, milk sheep, gotland sheep...and the list goes on. I work closely with fiber artists who clean, dye and spin my fibers for me. I enjoy adding glass beads, crystals, mulberry paper leaves, and flowers, ribbons, and all kinds of jewelry components to add interest to my wigs.

My Fantaisie fiber wigs are somewhat of a cross between dredlocks, and fiber art.

I've sold many of these by direct sale, or through Ebay and Etsy and many were commissioned.

I am incredibly passionate about my photography.
