Hello, and welcome to my website.
I am finding it hard to keep my website updated with current creations.
I decided rather than giving up my website, I have added my Instagram feed to this site.
It will now be updated as I post to my Instagram.
If you would like to purchase any of my creations, or have any questions,
please contact me through my Instagram direct message.
Thank you so much.
My name is Dessa Rae Greenwood. I am 68 years old and I have been making dolls since 1978, and I have been sculpting since 1990. I have been creating Reborns since 2003.
I am a self taught artist, learning by trial and error. I have received two Dolls Magazine Awards of Excellence nominations, once in 1995 and again in 1997.
I have received the Froud Artist of the Month award for May 2007. My dolls have had the honor of being featured in many doll publications over the years.
When I am not making dolls I am busy with my wonderful husband of 49 years, my beautiful children (all grown), and my 11 precious grandchildren.
I love to make jewelry and I love to belly dance. I can get lost in the antique shops, and I love to participate in the local doll shows in my state. I participated in the New York Toy Fair for two years and I also participated in the Doll and Teddy Bear Expo in Washington D.C. for two years.
I love the feeling I get when I hold my creations in my hands and know that they started out as a thought and finished as a Beautiful Work of Art.
It makes me happy to sell my creations, and to know that my art is going to a good home.
I tell everyone I know that you are never too old to play with dolls.
