Highlights of Jocelyne's artwork include Barbie as the Mona Lisa - her personal favourite; Barbie draped in pearls imitating Coco Chanel and posed as Marilyn Monroe in Andy Warhol's pop-art poster.
It can take Jocelyne an hour to several days to recreate the iconic artwork with a playful Barbie twist.
