Sissel Skille Biography
A grade school teacher until she was about 35 years old,
she stopped teaching and combined her talents and
passion for children into making beautiful life-like dolls.
Since 1980, the inspiration for all of Sissel’s work comes
from the expressions and faces of real children and from
photos of them. She is also inspired by new and antique
dolls. This Norwegian artist is a master of her trade.
She normally only makes about 10 dolls a year. Goetz
reproduces her dolls in vinyl. Her mother, who is in her
nineties, has even hand knit some of the clothing worn
by Sissel’s dolls. She works in Cernit with a cloth body.
She uses glass eyes and hand dyed human hair. Her
dolls are usually about 28” tall and sell for $10,000.00.
