Administrator and Treasurer
Based in the UK
A DHP&P member since 2012, Brooksey was invited to become an administrator two years later. In July 2018, she became the Treasurer, initially co-ordinating the fundraising effort to raise the money needed to create this new site, and she now manages the continuing fundraising required to cover further development and the recurring costs of maintenance and technical support.
A dolls’ house collector and miniaturist since 1991, Brooksey now has 20 houses (old, vintage and modern; factory-made, constructed to commercial plans and scratch-built), a 1:12 vignette created in a Croft sherry case, and a 1:12 church kit not yet built. The houses in her collection date from the early 1930s through to the modern kit, which was bought in 2017.
Since 2014, Brooksey has curated and edited the extensive DHP&P photographic archive, which includes the four “database” albums documenting G & J Lines, and Lines Bros’ Triang dolls’ houses. This work has brought Brooksey great pleasure - and a lot of knowledge! - and she feels privileged to have been able to do it.
