Top Artists of Collectible Life Like Realistic Dolls

Ethan-ML_02_pic1

When looking for a collectible doll, its helps to know who the artist is, how long they have been sculpting dolls, and what their product line is. There are many more talented artists out there creating beautiful dolls, but in this article I will list only 5 of the top artists of collectible dolls and some information about them and what type of dolls they create.

Linda Rick – The Doll Maker

Her story started many years ago in a little girl’s bedroom that was shared with her many dolls. She was very shy and so her treasured dolls offered conversation as she grew up. Linda’s mother was very artistic and taught her how to sew, knit and crochet at a young age. Linda groomed her dolls to her personal liking, redressing her dolls and creating new hairstyles for them. She added paint to their already perfect lips and trim and ribbons to their already adorable dresses, made them even better than one could imagine.

Linda started her business in 1990, calling the company The Doll Maker. She also has several other lines including, The Doll Maker & Friends, Key To My Heart, Lee Middleton Moments, & Precious Moments Dolls. In designing, Linda starts with a dream and then a vision of the entire look. The doll then often takes on a look all it’s own from Linda’s original concept. The doll then just comes to life with a distinct character…playful and fun, or elegant and graceful. Each design is from the heart and imagination of Linda, who indeed is feminine and frilly like her dolls.

Reva Shick – Lee Middleton Dolls

Reva grew up drawing and making paper dolls as a child and also remembers dressing the dolls in glamorous clothing. “We couldn’t afford dolls, so I had to make my own,” she says. Reva claims her creative ability is something inspired from above. She believes she has a God given talent because she cannot explain how the characteristics or expressions of the dolls face begin; they just tend to happen once she starts sculpting.

Reva and her doll sculpts have received numerous nominations and awards in 1998 for “Best New Doll” and “Best New Doll Artist” at the International Collectibles Exposition. She has continued to garner DOTY (Doll of the Year) Awards and Dolls Awards of Excellence for her beautiful doll creations. Since Reva joined with Middleton Doll, the industry and collectors alike recognized the magic of her sculpting.

Monika Peter- Leicht – Masterpiece Dolls

Monika started getting interested in dolls when a friend talked her into going to a stuffed-doll making class. She is a teacher, mother of 3, and has always loved children and babies. Their facial expressions have always fascinated her. In 1998 she visited her first class for doll reproductions, and ever since then she has been involved in the handcrafting of dolls. She says it is always a challenge for her to have the dolls as realistic and detailed as possible, because each doll has to be natural and lifelike.

She also believes that her creations are more than just dolls, they have little personalities, human moods and feelings – they can conquer the hearts of their adorers. Through creating dolls, she feels she has succeeded in harmonizing her love of children and her need for artistic creativity.

Pat Moulton – Many Doll Companies

Pat started her love for art at a very young age. The interest was always in the arts starting with drawing, oil painting, making bears, porcelain dolls, and finally sculpting. That is where I found my passion…in sculpting dolls.

She has been sculpting for 28 years, but only eight years ago that she started to sculpt babies. From then on it has been what she has loved the best. She has sculpted for Charisma Brands, Lee Middleton Dolls, & Paradise Galleries.

Laura Tuzio Ross – Masterpiece Dolls

Laura began her life as an artist at age 3. People and especially babies, have always been her passion and subject matter for all of her art.

She graduated from Moore College of Art and Design in Philadelphia, where she majored in fashion illustration. In January of 2004 she discovered sculpting and a new career of creating life-like doll babies has become a dream come true for her. Her inspiration for all of her work has been her three beautiful daughters.

New Masterpiece Collectible Dolls Are Pre-Selling NOW

I love when we get a new introduction of dolls.  Masterpiece Doll and their artists are always sure to please.  This time they have even offered a new boy doll, Ethan, who is Hailey’s brother.  How adorable are they.  The May dolls will begin shipping the end of August, and now we are offering the August Dolls which will ship Mid-November, right before the holiday season.  You don’t want to miss out on this pre-sell because once they are gone, we cannot get any more.

When you go to my website, make sure that you click on the videos offered.  Each of the artists have made a video about each of their dolls they have created.  It shows the different positions that the dolls can pose in, different hair styles, info about the ball-joints and their range of movement.  Very informational.

Ellie is the largest doll that we have ever offered in our store, and we also have a new baby doll, Kayla, who is created by a new artist for Masterpiece.  Her name is Sandy Faber from the Netherlands, and as you can see, she has done a wonderful job.
