Christine LeFever combines a love of dolls, an appreciation of history,
and the talent of a well-known folk artist to create exquisite dolls in early styles.
She has cherished dolls all her life, and has collected many types, eventually
concentrating on American dolls of the 18th and 19th centuries.
LeFever has achieved national recognition for her dollmaking and folk art. For years she created handmade chalkware figures and historically inspired paintings. She is a trained painter of primitive portraits. Her work has been featured in Early American Life, Country Living, and Country Collectibles magazines and in several Hearst Publications design books.
LeFever and her husband Gregory recently moved from Ohio to Oregon.
