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.

Spreading the Love This Holiday Season

Spreading the Love This Holiday Season

This past holiday season, we donated many of our dolls to the "Adopt A Senior" organization. Providing many elders, including Maria in the photos we're sharing, with dolls gives them a sense of joy and makes them feel less alone around the holidays. Our friends at Adopt-A-Senior organization told us the seniors faces lit up when they receive a baby doll and nothing makes us feel better than that! 
Sealed with a Kiss 💋

Sealed with a Kiss 💋

The first doll of January 2019 has arrived... and she's ready to give you a kiss! Inspired by the sweet sentiment of “Grandma Kisses”, we created a doll with UV color changing kisses! When our product development team was brainstorming for our 2019 dolls, they wanted to create dolls that were fresh, exciting and something our customers had never seen before. They came up with many ideas including this adorable girl, Sweet Kisses!

How Wings of Love Comes to Life.

A lot of work goes into creating the personalized charm. After an order is placed with Paradise Galleries, your special request is set to an engraving company. Each Wings of Love figurine can be personalized with up to 3 lines of engraving on the silver-toned heart. From there, each charm is carefully taken to their in-house personalization department; then the magic happens.
