I have been a doll lover all my life. Finding the reborning technique was really something that helped me through a hard time in my life, plus gave me something that I could do for other people. Making an ordinary baby doll into a collectible, cherishable heirloom, for generations to come, is so fulfilling for me. I find myself checking out babies when I am at the mall, to see exactly how their hair lays, or what color their cheeks are. It is so fun making these baby dolls come to life. I started reborning in Nov 2003.
I have worked with all types of vinyl, silicone vinyl, and silicone babies. Rooting hair is awesomely fun as well as painting hair! Just watching these babies come to life under my hands, is AMAZING.
I try to keep the prices on my babies reasonable. Mostly because when I first wanted to buy one for myself, I didn’t have the kind of funds it took to buy the babies I wanted. I decided then, that making money from this was not something I was after. Creating priceless artworks that others could enjoy for years at a reasonable price, was much more fulfilling to me. I believe that God has given each reborner a valuable talent. I want to share mine with as many people as possible.
Check out the pictures of babies I have made. *Note: most of these babies are already in their new homes.
If you know of a sculpt you’d like, please e-mail me for prices, and times to completion. Thanks so much.
