Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Pat Moulton and I have been creating dolls for over 40 years. I have been fortunate enough to win Dolls Awards of Excellence as well as invent reborn kits and sculpting tools. My goal is to sculpt dolls others will love and cherish for many years. Each doll I create comes from a passion to sculpt a doll that captivates the heart. My sculptures span a variety of doll types. From babies, to children, and ball jointed dolls. Occasionally I am inspired to create something completely different and at this time I have created fabric pets to add to my lineup. I love what I do and hope you can see that reflected in my work.
Laura Tuzio-Ross, who was voted this year’s Artist of the Year in the Dolls Awards of Excellence, has been pleasing collectors for nearly two decades with her vinyl reborns and silicone baby dolls. Her life-size sculpts are so realistic that she’s also become a go-to woman when a producer needs a lifelike baby doll. Her incredible sculpted infants have a thriving life as actors, stand-ins, and supporting players. It’s a path that Tuzio-Ross never would have envisioned for herself, but she is walking it like a red-carpet luminary.Read More

In a career that’s already passed the half-century mark, artist Beverly Stoehr has designed dolls for porcelain, vinyl, resin, and more. “My first and greatest love is creating babies,” she said. “I’m looking now at a new sculpt I made to be cast in silicone. I’m looking at coming out with two different sizes: one would be a 22-inch older baby and the other an 18-inch newborn. I would love to see my new sculpted baby produced as a kit for reborners.”Read More
Doll collecting is a very special hobby. It permits people to hold on to memories and to physically cradle their connections to childhood in their hands. Doll collecting and doll artistry are indeed powerful pastimes — and the term “past” and “times” are extremely relevant to Connie Lowe’s Marbled Halls 2022 lineup of dolls.Read More
