My name is María Jesús Chaparro and I live in Alicante (Spain). A beautiful and sunny city full of palm trees beside the Mediterranean sea.
I'm a self-taught person. In 1997 I started in the world of doll houses buying a small kit. Soon I started designing and building my own doll houses. Some of them have been exhibited in different places in Spain including a Museum in Madrid.
Some years later I started sculpting miniature food and my first dolls, with which I took part for years in miniature shows not only in my country, but also in Philadelphia (USA) november 2017 and Birmingham (England) 2008.
With the passing of the years I stopped making miniature food and dedicated myself only to the characters, that little by little I was improving and whom I incorporated 2 mm. glass eyes to give them more realism.
Nowadays I only sculpt characters (without using molds). All of them are OOAK 1/12 scale (14 cm. app.high – 5 ¾”). I always try to put a bit of soul inside and make them lifelike. They all tell a story.
In my profile you can see one album with part of my work during the last years that are no longer available, and other albums with the dolls available for sale. Price of my dolls are between 310 and 475 euros, depending on the doll.
I don’t make to order. Sorry.
