When I was in elementary school and asked what I wanted to be when I would tell everyone I wanted to design Barbies. I loved creating worlds and stories behind each of the dolls. i loved designing homes and the fashion of creating clothes and props when needed. I remember one of the teachers said to me, ” but Juliana, there are already Barbie designers in the world” and I replied ” what about when they die.” I must have had an inclination that at some point in my adult life I would be designing Barbies that didnt exist that I wanted to play with and create stop motion animations with. This is a series of dolls I created from 2015 – 2016. I have shown them both at HAVN and YOU ME GALLERY in downtown Hamilton, Ontario.
