About the Artist
Melanie Matteoli a.k.a Melacacia
Artist, Doll Customizer,
I graduated from Humboldt State University in 2003 with a BA in Studio Art. I feel very fortunate to have found an art niche that I truly enjoy. I love creating! In (too) many forms!
Illustrating, painting, digital art, photography, doll customizing, sewing, designing, homesteading, potion making, forest wandering, gardening, and cooking are just a few of the things that I can be found doing :)
I have been customizing Blythe dolls & designing dresses for them since 2007.
I have created over 200 custom dolls and I am honored to have my creations in private collections all around the world. My work has been featured in magazines and books as well as displayed in art galleries in Australia, USA, and in Tokyo, Japan.
Thank you for your ongoing enthusiasm and support in my work!
