Aloha!

Bo Bergemann has gained world renown for her award winning original fine art dolls.  Click play on the video above to take a peak at her studio and hear what Bo has to say!  She also has a fast growing international following for her original digital photographic art prints, Mixed Media art & pop art in both 2D and 3D formats.   Bo champions handcrafting and artisanal skills, possessing many herself.   

Visitors to Hawaii fall in love with Bo and her art at her gallery called Ki'i Nani in the quaint historic surf town of Haleiwa on the North Shore of Oahu.  Ki'i Nani means "Beautiful Likeness" in Hawaiian, a theme Bo's work circles back to time and time again.  Bo opened her Hawaii gallery in the Summer of 2016 desiring to share her work in person with her Ohana at home in Hawaii as well as visitors to her gallery from around the world.   Bo began making her original fine art dolls as a beloved hobby over 25 years ago inspired by the children of Hawaii.

 Refusing to be pinned down creatively, Bo sculpts, paints, enjoys photography and expresses herself in a wide variety of artistry and mediums.  She loves sculpting best, but also paints and creates inspiring mixed media artwork too.  In addition, Bo uses her artwork in many types of products and design applications. 

Bo works her magic using her extraordinary imagination and exquisite color sense, adding texture to her art at every turn.  Bo enjoys creating best in a 3D environment.  Much of Bo's work is inspired by her home state and the the people of Hawaii although her collections are actually quite an eclectic mix.  She is also inspired by popular culture, and her family.  "I believe my best art usually imitates life.  I know that's an old fashioned notion, but I've never been one to follow the crowd or any trend.  In fact most often I do my own thing even when it means going against the grain.  I'm passionate about my art because I'm passionate about life and the people in mine.  People and faces have always inspired me.  I express that best through my art."

Bo is too creative to be happy just doing one thing repetitively which leads her to make original fine art dolls often since she can sculpt, paint, design, costume, photograph and literally express herself through 10+ art skillsets and mediums in just one art piece all in a 3D space with the finished piece actually being interactive.  " Interactive art paves the way for creativity to continue flowing from me into the collector's home and life too.  How perfect is that?"  - Bo Bergemann

Bo's art is definitely eclectic which is a good thing because it means there is something for nearly everyone amongst her various collections.  Bo Bergemann is creative and truly unique in a world filled with cookie cutters and copycats where she and her work both stand out!

Bo is in the media all the time.   You might like to learn more from the perspective of some of the articles written about Bo Bergemann.

Special Additional Pre-Order running concurrent with Indiegogo Campaign: ASL Dolls 4 All!

Bo Bergemann's American Sign Language dolls have hands that are easily switched to showcase various ASL hand shapes to communicate!  The original offering sold out quick!  Then the official pre-order that followed also sold out and will deliver shortly.  Thank you to all who ordered and everyone who has been so enthusiastic and supportive of this new project.  We are running a Special Additional Pre-Order now for delivery July/August of 2018 in tandem with our Indiegogo Campaign: ASL Dolls 4 All!  This pre-order will end Jan 18th when that campaign also ends.  A portion of the proceeds from this pre-order will go towards the lofty goals expressed in that campaign.  

This is just the beginning for these little sweethearts.  My daughter Ambriel (who is deaf) and I have big dreams for these little ladies!  Check out my Indiegogo Campaign:ASL Dolls 4 All!  to learn more!  Or read on below for a brief synopsis.

These 13" original fine art ball jointed dolls stand, sit, balance and pose in many unique and expressive body language positions to help them communicate in addition to switching out hands to express ASL hand shapes to make words.  Bo's first ASL Doll sculpt "Alice" is named after Alice Cogswell, the little girl whose intelligence and desire to communicate and connect inspired Thomas Hopkins Gallaudet to teach her what has today become American Sign Language.  

These three dolls in the photo are saying "I love you!"  They can also say, Mom, Dad, Family is Important, Kitty Cat and so much more with just the first 6 hand shapes which were included with this original patent pending fine art doll.    The hands switch out so easily instructions for that are not even needed it's just obvious.  More hands will be made available in time.  Take a look at our YouTube Video to see them in action!  

These dolls debuted at the International Doll & Teddy Show mid June of 2017.  They are patent pending originals by Bo Bergemann.  

We have big plans for these little dolls to help bring more awareness of the beauty and potential of ASL to the American public.  Check out our Indiegogo campaign:ASL Dolls 4 All! if you would like to get in on this exciting adventure with us!
