Dayanara Garcia's Profile
A native Chicagoan, I studied design and illustration at Columbia College. I’ve always been artistic and creative. As a former Early Childhood Educator, I understand the need for open-ended play, simplicity, and nurturing, in a child's life.
Pin Pon is a line of original handmade dolls, toys, art and dress up, designed and made by me. Each item is made in my Chicago studio using natural and salvaged fabrics. An original drawing is always used to develop each doll character.
my dolls and designs have won several awards. I've been featured in several blogs and magazines such as Cookie magazine and Apartment Therapy. In 2012 I was names one of the top designers to watch by CBS News Chicago.
