My Bio

Hi - I'm Amy in Austin, aka AnLiNa (pronounced ahn-lee-nah).  AnLiNa is a Chinese name I was given by coworkers during a stint in China.  I started my website and made tentative plans to have a career in art someday soon after returning from China, so I used my Chinese name for my DBA.

I play in lots of different media, but my favorites involve some form of sewing.  I design and make soft-sculptured cloth dolls, art-quilts and 3-d fabric constructions.  I bind my own journals and occasionally journals for other people.  I like to paint and collage and carve my own stamps and have marbled paper and dyed and painted my own fabric.  

I have co-curated with a friend of mine an annual, unjuried quilt/doll/garment exhibit that has been shown at the Quilter's Heritage Celebration in Lancaster, PA, for the last 11 years called "Stretching Art and Tradition".  I have had quilts and dolls exhibited in the Stretching Art Exhibit, as well as dolls exhibited in the Treasures of the Gypsy and Celebration of the Doll exhibits at the International Quilt Festival in Houston, TX, and in the Enchanted Doll Artists Conference Exhibit in Albuquerque, NM.

  • Participating in the Open Studio's Tour

    Hi all!  My studio tour video will be on my blog tomorrow at 8:00am CDT (GMT-6).  Come by and see the results of my cleaning binge.  The before pictures (of the wreck) are up now.  I'll be giving away fabric and paper packs all day tomorrow!

  • My dolls won ribbons at EDAC!

    I entered two dolls in the judged challenge at the Enchanted Doll Art Conference in Albuquerque, NM.  One was Relasra, a dragon from a pattern I hope to produce for sale.  Relasra took 2nd place in the Intermediate Amateur category.  The second doll was one I call Lyri'tha, made from a Barbara Schoenoff pattern.  Lyri'tha took first place in the Intermediate Amateur category and won a Judges Choice ribbon.  I am back home and have a wonderful doll in progress that I started in Peggy Wilson's "Designing Doll's" class.  I will post pictures of her soon on my blog and will get pages up for the dolls I've completed this year on my website.
