2011 Update! Just listed are all the new dolls by Susan for 2011. She won a Doty award for the "Boy Arthur" at Idex! Our favorites were "Piper". She has a beautiful face. We would like to have her done in a ooak costuming in white. We also thought Guinevere had a beautiful dress.  "Gracie" has nice positioning and again, she can be done in OOAK costuming as well. "Amber" is classic Krey. Susan celebrates her 31st anniversary this year and we have carried them for about 21 years! We were thrilled that she introduced her very first "Classic Krey"  doll collection at our 2002 doll show and has participated and  or attended in 17 of our last 20 doll shows.

Email kmalone@dollery.com for more details or feel free to call us at 781-447-6677 ext 22.

We are taking orders with 25% down and balance due when in OR you can do an extended layaway thru year end. Also, be sure to ask about our pre-order specials on orders early in the year.  Her work is outstanding. Susan only creates about five editions a year and a couple one of a kind dolls.  Please contact kmalone@dollery.com for more details on Susan's dolls and for more bio information on Susan.

Susan Krey Bio: Susan is famous for her "Krey babies" which have been among the "cover girls" on the national  magazines and at the tops of the Doty and Dolls Award of Excellence lists for years. She is a world renowned doll artist who is best known for her work in wax over porcelain which seems to capture the realistic warm glow of real children.  Susan was born and raised in London and she currently resides in Washington state. Her love of bringing up her children sparked an innate creativity in her as far back as 1981 when she began creating beautiful small limited edition dolls in  porcelain and wax over porcelain. Susan joined our DOLLERY team in 1992.

On-line Doll Show Artist Videos from some years  Annual shows are now up including Susan speaking about her dolls!
