Alison Jackson Art Dolls

Dolls full of wit and whimsy. Enchanting handmade art dolls made for adult collectors, sometimes sweet and sometimes not so.

Coming from my love of Alice, my dolls come from a world where enchantments are just out of sight, strange Gothic creatures do exist, and wonder can abound? My dolls are for collectors who are looking for the unusual, each one is unique. They are handmade with no moulds and a great attention to detail. I hope each one of my dolls brings a sense of charm, a little piece of wonderland.

Build your own book – I’ve been trying book binding

I have become a little obsessed with book binding lately. The thinking being I can use the skills I learn to make boxes for my dolls using similar skills. As a Christmas present (or maybe birthday) a few years back, I received a beginner’s book binding kit. I only got...

Down Another Rabbit Hole

My Obsession With Alice “The time has come, to talk of other things–of shoes and ships and sealing wax, and cabbages and kings. And why the sea is boiling hot, and whether pigs have wings. Calloo, Callay, no work today, we’re the cabbages and kings.” – The Walrus...

The Red Queen is such a work of art! I'm so very pleased with her. Ally put forth such great attention to detail, which is evident from the Red Queen's crown all the way to her feet. I love her gold crown, her beautiful dress with the hearts, even her stockings are amazing. I'll definitely be ordering more dolls from Ally. She truly has an art for doll making.

Amy is an absolutely DARLING art doll! there's such a clever contrast of femininities both delicate/more traditional (the ribbon in her hair, the soft curls of her up do, the tulle beneath her dress) and gritty/non-traditional (her tattoos and the more aggressive print of her dress) in her. she's a beauty, and I’m so glad that she's found her forever home with me.

Absolutely amazing and truly beautifully designed. Unique pieces of handmade art made with pure love. Wrapped and shipped beautifully. High quality products. Lovely to speak with. The transaction was fast and smooth. Highly recommend and can’t wait for my future orders.

What a magical and magnificent Hatter Ally has created for me. Well worth the wait with all the mail delays, this gorgeous little piece of magic can now sit alongside Alice and conjure up daily schedules for teatime. Thank-you Ally for continuing to bring your delights and joy into my home, particularly at a time when they are so needed.
