he Professional Doll Makers Art Guild

Cherie Fretto was born in Troy, New York in 1946. She moved to Florida in 1995 and currently resides in Palm Harbor, Florida. She first found her creativity as a divorced mom struggling to support her two children, with the only way to get something new was to create it. In 2011 she wanted to make a Santa Claus for Christmas and found on the internet a CD by world-renown artist Jack Johnston on how to sculpt a Santa Claus. She ordered the CD and followed the directions. Although the CD was phenomenal her Santa came out incredibly hideous. It was then she became interested in OOAK (One of a Kind) dolls. She was so incredibly intrigued, she found herself becoming obsessed with learning this form of art. After many classes and lots of practice, she now creates each piece with love, tenderness and imagination.
