Welcome to the web site of Designs by Gretchen. My name is Gretchen Lima. I have been a dollmaker/artist for most of my life and it has been my vocation for the past 35 years.

Artwork is a process of discovery, for the artist as well as the observer. What you discover is in harmony with where you are on your voyage of life. I hope you enjoy this moment as our paths cross in the forest of wires and computer chips.
