Stephanie is a dollmaker and artist living in Milwaukee with her husband and two children. She started Milk & Violets in 2011 after the birth of her first baby. Each doll she creates is completely individual, and made by hand, using a variety of new and vintage fabrics in many patterns and textures. She draws inspiration from her children and nature. When she isn’t making dolls, she’s exploring Milwaukee with her kids, drinking coffee, thrifting, or watering her plants.
