Announcement    Hi, if you would like to request a custom order for a doll or inquire about my prices, then leave me a message here in my Esty shop. You can also come to my Facebook page to see updates and works in progress at https://www.facebook.com/beerealdolls/ to give you a better idea of how I work.

I specialize in painting very life like portraits on all kinds of dolls and work closely from photo's that you provide, personalizing them from head to toe to fit your requirements.
I lovingly rescue, repaint and re-style ALL fashion dolls from Barbies, Bratz, Vintage Pippa, Sindy to Monster High, whatever the doll, I can repaint it!

I work on every individual project myself so feel that my prices cover my skills and all the materials I need to add that extra value to my finished customs.

I love to create and tell stories with my dolls. They are little imitations of life. They can reflect what kinds of styles we enjoy, what kinds of moods we feel, they are a 3D embodiment of ourselves and with a little imagination we can turn a plain old factory doll into something magical and unique.

It is pure delight working on these dolls. After their original faces are wiped off using acetone and re-painted, their individual characters come to life, which makes them all one of a kind and a special gift for anyone who wants a doll they can relate to.

Lovingly personalized and repainted dolls.

I love to create and tell stories with my dolls. They are little imitations of life. They can reflect what kinds of styles we enjoy, what kinds of moods we feel, they are a 3D embodiment of ourselves and with a little imagination we can turn a plain old factory doll into something magical and unique.

As a young girl, I have always felt that I could not relate to the dolls I was given to play with, so I would end up making my own using plaster cine or clay. In my creative works, later on in life, I have added clay to fashion dolls to enlarge them in my “Barb Plus More” art projects. I would cast their reliefs onto walls in plaster or mold them into silicon rubber to make fuller figured dolls. These projects focused on the subject of the “Body Beautiful” and what was accepted in the world we live in.

Re-painting fashion dolls has been something I am passionate about. I customize each doll to resemble the person they are commissioned for and even add birthmarks, scars or even tattoo's on the doll, helping the individual to accept the marks on their body that define each one’s individuality. I have also been known to add sculpted prosthetic limbs to dismembered dolls, so no discarded doll gets left unloved!

With up-cycling second-hand dolls, I am able to marry all my skills into one project and transform these little discarded toys, from head to toe, into the true and REAL beauties they deserve to be.
It is pure delight working on these dolls. After their original faces are wiped off using acetone and re-painted, their individual characters come to life, which makes them all one of a kind and a special gift for anyone who wants a toy they can relate to.

    I'm a 3 dimensional artist and work using mixed media in all my projects. My main interest is customizing pre-loved and making my own dolls from head to toe. I pride myself in capturing a good likeness as I have a fondness of faces from all cultures
