  • Angela Dugan's Originals Where you can become a Work of Art. If you are looking for an alternative to having a Portrait painted on a flat canvas? Portrait Art Dolls are the perfect way to be remembered. They are works of art that can be examined, held and treasured as family heirlooms. Future generations can get a 3-Dimensional sense of what Grandma or Grandpa really looked like on their Wedding day or any other special time in their lives. Aside from capturing an amazing likeness, I strive to include every little detail that makes you unique. Whether it be your dimples, the way you stand or that spark in your eye. I've also, been know to perform mini-plastic surgery by enhancing or minimizing anything that doesn't compromise the likeness of the doll. For example: enhancing the bust-line, cinching the waist and making that little double chin disappear is not a problem. It's a beautiful way to preserve a special occasion or any moment in time. Each and everyone of my creations whether they be Cake Tops, Bride dolls, Baby dolls or dear old Grandpa (mini to life-size) are a labor of love and an incredible challenge. There are far too many details and options to mention at this time, but can honestly say that I haven't come across the impossible, yet. Please, allow me the honor of making you and your loved ones a work of art. Please, contact Angela Dugan for pricing and availability. Thank you. LOCATION: California
