About the Artist: Jackie Chimpky

 

I have been in the business of making handcrafted reproduction dolls for the past 26 years. I teach classes and seminars which specialize in both antique and modern reproduction dolls.

My dolls are created with special care, pride, and only the top quality products. I do not mass-produce so every doll is made unique.  All of my dolls have glass eyes, except dolls with hand-painted eyes.

 

I have won many blue ribbons, rosettes, and trophies in doll competitions. 

In 2002, I earned the Professional Millie Award, in 2003 I earned the Professional Maggie award .

I am a Doll Artisan Guild Instructor.

I also am a Certified Jean Nordquist Instructor for Collectible Doll Company. 

 I have also written many articles for several national doll magazines including 

Doll Crafter, Doll Artisan, Doll Costuming and Dolls Beautiful.

 

I am a DAG Instructor offering DAG Seminars for points from the Doll Artisan Guild.

In 1994 I became a certified instructor for Jean Nordquist of the Collectible Doll Company. 

I teach various painting and costuming seminars. 

Please see my Seminars List for upcoming classes.

 

Along with running my doll business, I am a wife and a mother of three grown children. 

I also have two beautiful daughter -in-laws. 

I have 3 grandsons, and 3 granddaughters.

My husband, Don, does all the photography for the magazine articles (and is one of my biggest supporters).

 

All of my dolls come with a "Certificate of Authenticity", 

verifying that it is a reproduction doll made by Jackie Chimpky.
