Hello.  I'm Vanessa Morrison.   I live in Lilburn, GA, a suburb of Atlanta, GA.  I don't remember a time when I didn't love dolls, particularly Barbie.  As a child, I used dolls to live in their wonderful world of townhomes, corvettes, and beautiful clothes. 

In 1990, I graduated from Penn State University with a B.S. in Electrical Engineering.  I was ready to take on the world.  After 12 years of traveling and "taking on the world", I realized my Barbie dolls still had a better life.  Much less stress. 

In 1996 my love of dolls guided me to start creating porcelain-dolls.  I absolutely loved it.  After my 2nd class, I bought a kiln and set up my own little studio.  Of course, I was still very much into Barbies and Gene dolls.  I became an avid collector.  How else does an adult justify having so many dolls?

No matter what job or business I venture into, I keep gravitating back to dolls.  My passion for dolls is still guiding me to this day.
