Welcome to the

herry McDonald was a customizer active in the 1970's and helped to forge the way for customizers. Back when Sherry was doing models, the now common mohair and less desirable craft fur was very hard to come by (Ramie was not even available until the past five years or so!) so artists had to be resourceful if they wanted to make a hair mane and tail for their models. Sherry was known for using real horse and human hair for her models and she even rooted the hair on many models! As you will see, the affect is not always the best, but at the time it was state of the art!

Elizabeth Bouras generously provided the photos shown in this small gallery, but I'm always looking for more.
