Additional information 

“Teresa Doyle is a visual artist, working between paint, collage and textiles. In recent years, her main practice has been doll-making, in which she creates fabric dolls that are based on people, memories, and traditions. Having grown up in a home in which her mother fixed, darned and mended her and her siblings’ clothing, Teresa developed a love and respect for the skill of sewing, and the role it can play in creating, fixing, mending, and repurposing. In this regard, Teresa’s dolls aim to tell a story, capture an individual character, and evoke memories through the use of old, second-hand garments and repurposed fabrics in their construction.”
