Since then Brenda Sneathen Mattox has become one of the most popular contemporary paper doll artists, widely admired for her exquisite renderings of carefully researched historic and vintage fashions. She currently is a managing editor of Paper Doll Studio, the quarterly publication of the Original Paper Doll Artists Guild. She has illustrated a dozen paper doll and coloring books for Dover including Pride and Prejudice, The Importance of Being Earnest, Victorian Family and Naughty Girls Paper Dolls. Her love of vintage fashion and illustration talents are evident in her paper dolls for Paper Studio Press including Cinderella Paper Dolls and 17th Century Costumes, The Changing Shape of Fashionand Love of Lace Paper Dolls.
