Doll art.

As a doll artist I know we all do allot of work.But the book I’m reading suggest it takes knowledge of at least 15 different arts to make a doll.Which I knew we all wear many hats but it’s kind of overwhelming when you read it.And keep in mind I’m totally self taught.No wonder I’m insane!
