I proudly belong to the following guilds:
My name is Lara Antonucci and I am the original artist behind Angels in Waiting Nursery.
I am married to a wonderful man, and we have five children; Zack, Jake, Dominic, Angelina, and Sofia.
I discovered the love of reborning in 2007 when I was pregnant with my 5th baby, Sofia. Her older sister Angelina, wanted a "real baby" too. The search for a realistic doll began and I stumbled onto a reborn doll on Ebay. I was blown away by her realism and beauty, and I just knew that I wanted to create one of my own.
I am now a well established artist and have been creating prototypes for some incredibly talented sculptors such as Adrie Stoete, Shawna Clymer, Linda Murray of the Cradle, Olga Auer and many others. I teach online classes and travel around the US and Canada performing live workshops.
I am proud to be associated with doll conferences such as IDEX, DEDS, and IRDA, where I will also be teaching workshops.
All of this has led to the creation of my teaching business, REAL Reborn, which stands for Reborning Excellence
& Artful Learning.
My love of this art also allows me to find time to create beautiful custom babies, as well. My dolls are highly sought after by many collectors worldwide and I have established prestige in the industry by winning 2 Colliii nominations and being awarded the title of Master Artist by IIORA.
I am so pleased that you chose to visit my nursery and I hope to hear from you soon.
