About Me

         Thank you so much for visiting my website.  My name is Kory Fann and I am the Reborn Doll Artist behind Pumpkin Doodle Babies located in Southern Illinois.

       I am married to my high school sweetheart and we have two little girls who inspire me daily.  My husband is very involved with anything that has a motor and specifically loves painting/restoration.  My first born loves cheerleading and horses.  My youngest enjoys baby dolls and coloring. We have a hectic, beautiful life that I love so much! 

       My grandmother made porcelain dolls for many years.  When I was little, I would stay in the guest bedroom most weekends which was covered in them!  While the other grandkids were afraid of them, I was mesmerized.  Looking back, I don't think I ever realized how much they intrigued me.  I had porcelain play dolls, but I didn't play with them- I wanted them in pristine condition.  And so,  I think making dolls is what I was always meant to do. Toddler/child size dolls remind me most of the porcelain dolls.  I never played with babydolls much.  This is why a lot of my dolls are ‘’dolly’’ with long hair to style.

      I became educated on Reborn dolls around February of 2012.  After lots of research, workshops around the States, and many years of trial and error, I  now create beautiful dolls for people all around the world. The thrill of taking a blank vinyl sculpt and transforming it into a work of art will never get old. I am always learning new techniques and I love working with people to create their perfect vision of a doll.


          Although two babies may have the same features, they never look exactly alike. Each and every reborn is truly unique and one of a kind. I hope you find my shop helpful and get an idea of my reborning style and technique.
