Rivkah Mizrahi

My “real” name is Renee, and my nickname is Rivkah.  I got this name many years ago, and it stuck with me.

I’m a doll artist at heart and a tax professional at work.  I create dolls to keep me happy, feed my whimsy, and make an important – but dry – job feel more vibrant and animated. One of these days I will be able to retire from my day job.  Isn’t that what we all wish for?  I also enjoy the outdoors and I love being outside in nature.  My favorite “sport” is snowshoeing.

When I was young, I was always very artistic.  I did well in school, so I was expected to get a “real career.”  I could never really decide what I wanted to do, because nothing but art was ever quite “me.”  I became a tax accountant because I was pretty good at that sort of thing, and it was a marketable skill.  It takes up a lot of my time, and so now that I am getting older, I really want to do what I love.  That’s why I created this website.  Life is just too short.

I don’t want to give in to the constant busy state that the world today demands. I like making dolls, and I make it my business to make time for them. And for myself.   I’m practicing more, sharpening my skills, and doing what I can to travel to to doll retreats, participate in online doll communities, and learn from doll artists I admire.

I like to talk about art. I started one of the first dollmaking blogs nearly nineteen years ago, before the days of social media. I’ve carefully modernized it, worked on it, and made it better – and I hope you’ll visit often.  I want to meet more “doll people!”  It’s so much more fun than taxes…

I’ve always wanted to write a book; I’ve started on it.  Maybe someday soon I’ll really finish it.

I love cats, and I have two: a blue Scottish Fold named Melody, and Ziggy Stardust, an odd-eyed white Turkish Angora.

As you can see, I’m a busy person – but I make time for myself and my creative outlet because it’s important to me. I’m whimsical and inventive, and I am an aspiring artist with a unique medium. I encourage you to follow your dreams, do what fulfills you, and have a dollightful day!

How I Use Social Media


Storytelling through street photography, modeling of dolls, works in progress, and dollmaking techniques.


A gallery of my work and linkbacks to my blog; collections of things that inspire me artistically.


My favorite platform. Reddit is a real community with an incredible amount of information for hungry minds. I hope to see our artsy community of doll makers trending – join me there!


Personal discussions about dollmaking,
and getting to know you. Freebie patterns and helpful information.


General news, shout-outs, and
in-the-moment banter.
