MarissArt Dolls, Etc. is the artful blog of Marissa Fratoni. I enjoy crafting anything from sculpted mixed-media art dolls and figurines to stuffed creatures and angels. I love to make ornaments, cake-toppers, wall-hangings, and greeting card characters. When I'm not immersed in creating, I study nursing, work as a licensed massage therapist, practice yoga, and play house with my wonderful husband Mark. Art is certainly my outlet. So it is here that I will share with anyone who is interested my creative process, the many avenues of inspiration I come upon in my life, and how I make sense of it all in my travels.
