IN THE BEGINNING


Hi, I'm Jackie & thank you for visiting my Patreon Page!  My journey creating Reborn Dolls began 5 years ago.  In March of 2013, my oldest daughter (now almost 17 years old), wanted a reborn doll for her Confirmation gift.  She was in 6th grade at the time. I have never heard of them and she showed them to me on the computer.  After researching, we found an artist & a doll she liked.  When my daughter opened her doll, I could not believe my eyes.  Not only did I think she was adorable (and real!), but I was immediately drawn to her art.  I couldn't help staring at the veins, mottling, and the beautiful colors she was created with.  I said to myself, "I can do this."

At the time, I was a stay at home mom with three little girls.  I began my homework and bought a starter kit, paints, etc.  To me this was a great hobby!   I schooled myself by watching YouTube tutorial videos, taking notes in my copybook, making many mistakes but constantly learning, and never giving up. My hobby was turning into my career.....




                                   INSTAGRAM = INSTA-CHANGE


I stumbled upon Instagram 5 years ago.  I created a page & started putting my work out there.  Not long after that, I was picking up custom orders and meeting a community of people who loved the art of Reborns like me.  I met a lot of cool people on Instagram and we're still in touch after 5 years!  


I started to gain a big following and now have over 6,000 followers on my Instagram.  Some of my followers know me as their "Insta-Mom", and I love that!!  I became an inspiration to young artists and told them to never give up on what you love and are passionate about!  You are going to mess up, you're going to get frustrated, but keep going!!!  




                YOU'RE NEVER TOO OLD TO START YOUR DREAM


My world has changed quite a bit since I began my passion.  I will always credit my daughter for showing me the world of Reborn Dolls.....without her, I wouldn't be where I am today.  I'm grateful for the community of people I have met and fellow artists as well.  It's great knowing there are many who share the same passion as you do.  




I'm extremely grateful to have had the opportunity to do  Prototypes for Laura Tuzio Ross and I recently won Melody Hess' Prototype Contest in October, 2017 for painting her "Ivy Jane" kit!  I'm still in shock and truly honored! 




                                                      THANK YOU


As a "Thank You" for your support, I'm having a "Christmas In July Reborn Doll Giveaway".  Your pledge will go towards materials/supplies needed to create your baby.  You will have a generous box opening. It has been a few years since I've had a giveaway, and after stumbling across "Patreon", I felt this was a cool way to give back.  I would not be where I am today without my family, friends, my "insta-daughers" lol, and most of all my first born daughter.  Thank you Hannah xo
