Artist Spotlight: Mayra Garza

We work some amazing Artists from all around the world to bring you the dolls you see and cherish so much. We pride ourselves on collaborating with both world renowned Artists and emerging ones, whose work we want to help bring to a wider audience. If Mayra Garza is not already, she is well on her way to being a household name. Mayra crafts some stunning dolls in her studio in Mexico, and we’ve been lucky to feature her works in our Paradise Galleries line as well as in our One of a Kind Gallery.

Mayra has certainly been busy this year. Her dolls alone 16have garnered over 5 Doll Awards including 3 Diamond Awards and a Gold Award from the Professional Doll Makers Art Guild.

We asked Mayra what she thinks has changed the most from when she first started sculpting as an Artist to now, and she told us ” Practice makes perfect, I sculpt full-time. It might sound crazy, but I also sculpt to relax in my free time because sculpting dolls for me is not work, it’s my passion! All this practice has helped me to improve my skills and methods during the years.”

One of our favorite dolls from Mayra is Cosita Maria, who celebrates her Mexican Heritage and is actually inspired by one of Mayra’s daughters named Marcela pictured left.

Thank you Mayra, for the beautiful treasures you’ve given us at Paradise Galleries and the rest of the world! You can view more of Mayra’s work on her website HERE.

Bonding With Your Baby

Bonding With Your Baby

Many reborn moms and dads find it truly comforting and therapeutic to spend time with their reborn babies. Holding them close to the heart, or even just by staring at them is already a great activity to unwind and relax after a long tiring day at work. Some love to bring them to the grocery store, or carry them for a quick stroll to the park where many would mistake them as a real baby! Truly, the companionship these dolls provide helps in so many ways, and one of them is to help us cope up with strenuous events and thoughts, such as during this hard time where we are all encouraged to stay at home.
