Meet the Author

When she was a little girl in Frankfort, Indiana, Brenda loved drawing ballerinas, Cinderella and paper dolls (not necessarily in that order). A creative kid, she used to expand the wardrobes of her paper dolls by creating fanciful costumes for them. Years passed and now Brenda Sneathen Mattox is happily back where she started. Drawing and making paper dolls.

After finding out about the Original Paper Doll Artist Guild in 1987, Brenda immediately joined and then attended her first National Paper Doll Convention. She had found her artistic niche and began by self-publishing Lydia, a black-and-white paper with a wardrobe for an 1888 bride.

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.

Brenda's charming studio is located in a beautifully restored 1891 Queen Anne house in Plainfield, Indiana, where she lives with her husband, Brian.
