Dessa Rae Greenwood
I am a self taught One-of-a-Kind doll Artist. I divide my artistic time between Painting, Sculpting, and my Cloth Doll Creations.
I have been married to an amazing man for the past 48 years.
I have 4 wonderful children and 11 beautiful grandchildren.
I have been making dolls since 1978. I have been sculpting since the early 1990s. I have always loved to paint.
I started out making cloth dolls, but I didn't get the realism I desired. I found Cernit and I was soon hooked on sculpting. Many, many dolls ended up in the trash, and there was a lot of trial and error, mainly error. At that particular time there wasn't a lot of information for beginning sculptors. The information concerning One-of-a-Kind Dolls was a closely guarded secret.
I have won two Dolls Award of Excellence nominations. One in 1995 and the other in 1997. I won the Froud Artist of the month in May 2007. My dolls have been featured in many Doll Publications over the years. I specialize in miniature Fantasy dolls. I am always happy when I am creating and sculpting, and even happier when one of my creations goes to a good home.
