Today Susanna Oroyan passed away. She is the reason I began making dolls. I picked up her book, Fantastic Figures, in the Summer of 2000. I was introduced to a whole new world of creative expression. I would not have that voice without Susanna Oroyan. She is and always will be the dollmaker's muse. May she rest in peace and may light perpetual shine upon her.
