A couple days ago when my dear pal Miwa Gemini was visiting... I don’t even know about what, but we tend to laugh until we cry with great frequency when we’re together, it’s pretty wonderful!

There are a lot of movies where even the trailers are unbearable, so I avoid them, and re-watch my favorites over and over.

Alice in Wonderland or Lili (Leslie Caron) I always talk to rabbits and puppets anyway so these seem like a good fit.

Lon Chaney, Buster Keaton... and Lurch from the Addams Family.. they are all dreamy in their own special way!
9. What's the best moment of your day?
Every day seems to have different amazing moments. So far today’s best moment is seeing my dog who’s supposed to be quite ill, act as if he will live forever by playing like a puppy... this has me very happy today!
10. What doll of yours do you think is your best?
Oh, I can’t pick. I love them all the same. I can tell you which doll is the happiest.. Azaeleah, she has no idea anything other than sunshine, lollipops, and rainbows exist. She’s got the right idea!
Long obsessed with the whimsical side of traditional fairy tales, artist & storyteller Christy Kane creates life size, one-of-a-kind, handmade dolls then photographs them in antique settings to illustrate her original stories. Her dolls have remarkably distinct personalities, her photographs are nuanced and richly detailed, and her stories are haunting and unforgettable. Her first book “Tales of the Sisters Kane” is now available. With the help of the Chiodo Bros. (Killer Klowns from Outer Space, Vincent, Team America) she created a live puppetry version of her tale “Callalilly" which won runner up for Most Visually Innovative Short Film at the 2008 Baltimore Women’s Film Festival. She is currently working on “Tales of the Sisters Kane Book II” and her next short film.
