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 three children. We live in a Victorian house which always needs work. When writing, our menagerie consists of a fifteen-year-old cat called Ruffie, a lurcher named Alf, Clinton the bearded dragon, and Morpeko the hamster. I have an MA in fine art (sculpture) and worked for many years making art and doing exciting stuff for museums and galleries.

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 27 years and has undergone many changes as my work and interests have developed. It is my favourite place to be. I occasionally share my studio with our children and some close, creative friends, but I always share it with my cat.

You can find me posting regularly over on Instagram

You can also find me on Facebook, and I have a board on Pinterest

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.
