Rachelle Bartel, a.k.a Lillycat, is a sculptor and illustrator living in Toulouse, France. Graduated from classic arts and after a few years working into communication, she turned towards comics and illustration in 2004, with her first series Minaloween, before getting into ball-jointed-dolls creation, with the making of her first prototype Sandre in 2005. Benefiting from Lillycat's artistic background and sculpting craftsmanship, those first models, some of which were exhibited in art galleries, promptly attracted attention for their quality and unique personality.
Since then, Lillycat creates pieces of various styles and sizes, from the cartoon lolita to the slender beauty, and sells them to collectors all around the world, running this dollmaking activity full-time from her workshop.
Aileen is well known for both her delicate and detailed faceup customisations of Ball-Jointed Dolls. She has spent many years refining her skills since she began painting BJDs in 2008. When not painting she enjoys crafting stunning cosplays which have earned her multiple awards at masquerade competitions in her home province of Manitoba.
