Hanna Kahl-Hyland is a doll artist who carves and paints some of the most beautiful Hitty dolls found today.  She is a Fellow of IGMA and one of a few of the Guild artisans who carves dolls in wood.

The International Guild of Miniature Artisans was birthed by a small group of artisans around a kitchen table and the first Guild Show was in April 1979.  To learn more about IGMA, visit their website http://www.igma.org/index

Hanna Kahl-Hyland has exhibited her work at the International Toy Fair in New York City and examples of her dolls are on permanent display in the Kentucky Gateway Museum in Maysville, KY.

Hanna is a miniaturist who will amaze you with her talent for creating Hitty dolls as well as 1:12 doll house scale dolls and miniature reproductions of oil paintings.
