Nancy Lee’s Note:

This autumn was the first time in two years that I had time to paint dolls.

Next I have oil paintings to create.  I will not be painting more dolls, therefore, until (perhaps) summer 2017.

An heirloom for doll collectors . . . painted by Nancy Lee Moran

A beautiful sculpt, painted by a portrait artist who admires dolls, lovely clothing, lifelike painted eyes = an artistic doll!

This is the only Tatum doll that I will be offering.

Tag Along Tatum is an eight-inches, 20 centimeters, doll by Helen Kish in 2010, Limited Edition 200 for a doll convention. Nancy Lee Moran repainted her face and eyes in 2016. She has her original blond mohair wig in a bob cut with bangs. The vinyl doll has jointed shoulders, hips, and neck. In some photos Tatum wears a smocked Boneka dress and bonnet of batiste pale-blue cotton. She also wears her original dress with a ducks design on the hem, an embroidered duckling near the collar.  She comes with her original Kish clothing, shoes, box, Kish COA, and my repainting certificate. The smocked dress and bonnet Boneka Company are not included in the auction.

Nancy Lee purchased Tatum on eBay for $92.00 from a seller who had displayed her in a doll cabinet out of sunlight in a smoke free home.

This Tatum doll is the same one that appears in two of Nancy Lee's artistic photos on the website Fine Art America. See Tatum with Lark Kish at the two links below.

Here is the web page that Nancy created for Tatum:

Tatum's Web Page

The web page looks best on ipads and larger screens.

Nancy used a blush of shadow-colors in creases, dimples, and concave areas of the face. Variations of the cheek color are on the nose and chin, at the skin-corners of the lips, at inner corners of the eyes, along the inner edge of eyelids, in the nostrils, in the collar bone crevice, inside the ears and on earlobes.

None of the paint pigments use lead or cadmium. While painted for adult collectors, the paint is safe around toddlers and babies.
The photos are of the actual doll, taken in natural daylight near a window by Nancy Lee in her smoke-free studio. Nancy is NOT affiliated with any doll company, creator or manufacturer.
The doll page on the artist’s website (Google: Nancy Lee Moran) shows that each doll she has repainted is unique.
Nancy Lee Moran's POLICY TO SHOW RESPECT for doll creators is as follows: The dolls I repaint were factory-artisan painted or were blank mannequins. I would not repaint a doll that the artist (Helen Kish) had painted herself, such as some of those in the Kish Signature Line. I would not paint a Kish sculpt in a limited edition of fewer than 300 (preferably 500 or more). I consult the beautiful book I own titled Helen Kish: The Artist and Her Dolls by Louise Fecher (hardcover published in 2006). I am NOT affiliated with any doll company, creator or manufacturer.
