I started my journey around 3 years ago when I purchased my first reborn.
I suffer with empty arm syndrome even though I have my own children.
I have always really enjoyed dolls and still have my very first one from when I was a child.
The joy I felt when I first held my first reborn who is called Rose was like nothing I had ever felt before.
I was instantly calmed and it was the best night sleep I'd had in years.
I decided that I wanted to bring that much joy and peace to others so I started painting them myself, making loads for my mum who I encouraged to start painting as well.
