Sissel Bjørstad Skille has lived in Norway all her life. She''s loved dolls since she was a child, and also loved to draw and sculpt. When she was 35, she found she could combine her gifts and make dolls for the world to love. The inspiration for her subjects comes not only from children but from other dolls; old and new. Skille works in Cernit and Modelene, and loves to clothe her dolls in traditional Norwegian outfits. Her partnership with Götz began in 1998.

Sissle Skille is noted for her extemely realistic sculpts of babies, toddlers and young children. She is one of the most popular artists designing dolls for Gotz.
