Welcome to my website, my name is Lisa Olson (Gregg). I am the owner and creator of Hello Dolly Dolls and have been sculpting dolls since 2006.

My interest in collecting dolls began as a small child.  As an adult, in  the 80’s I learned the art of repairing dolls. I was a “doll doctor” for many years. This hands-on care and restoration of dolls fueled me into the art of “reborning” which I did from 2002–2006.

 

In 2006 I began sculpting life size babies and have had several of them produced into reborn doll kits. I have since broadened my sculpting to  children, fantasy figures and ball-jointed dolls. I have also sold my life size baby sculpts to Paradise Galleries which they mass produce for Charisma Brands. 

 

My sculpting career has been highlighted by the many awards I have received for my, one-of-a-kind dolls. Doll Reader Magazine has honored me with several Industry's Choice Awards over the years. They have also done featured articles about me and my dolls. 

Along with the accolades and recognition of my sculpts, I am proud to say that I won the Gold Award presented by the Professional Doll Makers Art Guild for my Ball Jointed Doll, “Juliet”. 

 

As an accomplished artist, I have learned to reproduce my original doll sculpts in resin, silicone and vinyl, but I prefer to make one of a kind dolls in polymer clay.  The doll sizes of my sculpts vary from tiny doll house size to life-size dolls.

 

My love for all types of dolls keeps my sculpting style as eclectic and varied as my personal doll collection. If a doll I create makes someone smile, then I have achieved my goal. 

 

Always remember:  You are never too old to play with dolls.

Juliet Capulet is the Juliet from Shakespeare's famous novel "Romeo and Juliet." Many a theatre has produced plays of this tragic yet beautiful love story and the movie industry has had their share of Romeo and Juliet movies.

 

The romance and the opulent gowns that Juliet wore made this doll was a "must do" for me. She even comes with a letter from Romeo.

Her emerald blue gown is of a satin material with a gold lame, brocade front panel. The delicate lace under her sleeves and the black and gold trim on her dress are vintage. 

She wears a flouncy half slip with wide lace and matching pantaloons. The lighter blue embroidered ribbon on her dress really brings out her crystal blue eyes. 

She has a sweet braided wreath with pearls upon her head with flowing ribbons at the back. Of course she has shoes and stockings too and a cross necklace. Dress designed and created by Lisa Olson.
