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.

This is a fairly new body with more movable joints — a lower hip movement and a more flexible knee joint. The Franny body is my 16-inch doll size.Read More
