My name is Rachel Maynard and I am the sole artist here at PLB! I live in the small Georgian market town of Pershore which is beside the river Avon in beautiful Worcestershire, with my husband and four children. I work from our family home creating dolls and taking part in whatever other crafts take my fancy.
I have been reborning for many years. I started creating dolls when I was on maternity leave, when it came to returning to work I really didn't want to leave my young family so I decided to take a risk and turn my hobby into a job. Since this time I have created hundreds of beautiful dolls and taken part in some amazing adventures such as creating tutorial DVDS, learning to sculpt and producing doll kits, attending a doll show in Florida, holding personal reborn lessons with artists from around the world, producing a silicone edition and many more.
There have been many ups and downs over the years, there have been times I've had to step back from doll making to concentrate on others things, but no matter where life takes me I always seem to come back to this wonderful community. I am so lucky to have met so many lovely people, many of who will be life long friends.
Love Rachel x
