Thank you so much for visiting PinkyMinky.
My name is Jane and I live in a leafy suburb of Manchester in the north of England. I am married and we have 3 young children. We live in a Victorian house which always needs work. At the time of writing, we have 2 cats, 2 Guinea pigs, a hamster, and a house rabbit. I have an MA in fine art (sculpture) and worked for many years making art and doing interesting stuff for museums and galleries, before I had children and was kidnapped by the sewing fairies, falling into the magical world of doll making.
I am lucky to have a studio at home, which has been my working home for almost 20 years and has undergone may changes in that time, as my work and interests have developed. It really is my favourite place to be. I often share my studio with our children, and also with some close, creative friends, but always with my cat.
You can find me posting regularly over on Instagram
I have a shop, too, where you can find the current dolls I have available to buy, and you can subscribe to receive news about shop updates.
