I would recommend Lorraine Boisvert of Clair de lune Nursery - I received regular updates along with progress pictures, have purchased two of her full bodied silicone babies and got my eye on her new open eyed one.

Also Kelly Dudley and Andrea Donaldson (Andreas Dream babies).
Of these, I believe Nola and Kelly are doing customs at this time.

I would highly recommend Nikki from Everlasting Childhood. She is fantastic to work with and goes above and beyond on her babies. They are all amazing! Much better in person than even her wonderful pictures. She is also a super sweet lady!
Her reborning is amazing! Worth sooooo much more than what she charges.

The other artist I'd highly recommend is Emily's Dream Dolls. I ordered a custom Indie from Emily and she was really wonderful to work with and the baby is really beautiful! Emily sent me tons of WIP photos and was very communicative with me (we mainly used Facebook and she sent me lots of photos there).
I agree. Emily does fabulous work.
I have a couple of her babies as well.



Thank you, Lynne and Nadia! I’m back!!! :hug:

I haven't read back through all these to see if my favorite artist is already mentioned - but - I love the reborns I've gotten from Angie of Lil Dumplins Nursery. She paints beautifully and communicates great and ships quickly. She's my number one go-to reborn person! :)

For Canadians reborn lovers (so we don't have to pay custom and duty fees...Yay!), I've did a custom some years ago with Betty-Ann Blackburn and she specialize in the Noah sculpt from Reva Schick (she did 350 Noah!) and sent very good WIP pictures. Unfortunately, I'm no longing owning this doll and I still think about getting another one done by Betty-Ann. Sweet thingz nursery on eBay.

I am going to echo Jody Slater and Heavenly Butterflies Nursery, but also Renee at Studios of Renee Mac. Both are very talented and wonderful to work with!

Brianna Francis from Boona’s Babies is a very talented reborn artist and does custom orders.
Lol if I knew how to post a picture in this comment I would show you the Cammi and Julieta I had her do. 😉

I am new to the reborn community, but I bought a beautiful baby from Betsy Valentin-Thomas of Betsy's Beautiful Babies and she is phenomenal. I am awaiting a custom from her now. She is so sweet, checks with me on every detail and her prices are incredibly fair and reasonable.

I have enjoyed working with Mandy Marks of Chrysalis Dolls (she can be found on Instagram and Facebook), Grow with Me Reborning (she can be found on Instagram) and I am currently working with a new to me artist on a custom.

Definitely Emily's Dream Dolls! Mom and I have ordered 4 of her babies and they are beyond amazing! She is such a gracious lady, so wonderful to work with.

Thank you ladies for starting this post. I've been wondering about a good custom artist. Can I find these nurseries on Facebook, or here on Doll Fan? I don't know if it's allowed, but can you post links to their pages?

I'm seeking someone to do a Chase in the $500-$1000 range.


Thanks
