Dale Zentner

2012 Update!  Well, we certainly have missed Dale doing original one of a kind work as she has expanded the last couple of years into BJD dolls. We are constantly looking for 2nd market one of a kind beauties by her as they are no longer being made by Dale and we have acquired little "Fleur" just recently from one of our very best clients ever! See below! Take note - this is a 2nd market doll so it has had one owner but she is in mint condition. The dollery gives all 2nd market dolls our seal of approval before they go out! Email kmalone@dollery.com  . We will continue to try to get Dale to do more originals for us but for now she is working on BJD work. "Sylvie" was the last original she had back in 2010. Dale participated in our 2008 and 2009 doll shows  and quite a few prior. We just love her work. Be sure to get on our mailing list for our free show catalogues which come out in August each year.  Email kmalone@dollery.con your information and we can update you as well on new work.

Be sure to make sure you are on our Dale Zentner mailing list specifically so you receive updates on her new work as it comes in. Email kmalone@dollery.com your address and number. Feel free to also inquire about custom order possibilities.

 Dale Zentner's Biography courtesy of the artist - "I grew up on a prairie farm in Saskatchewan, Canada. When not playing in the fields, my sisters and I entertained ourselves by making cut-out dolls from pictures in catalogues. During the long winters, our mother taught us needle arts such as sewing, knitting and embroidery. Drawing was also a favorite pastime of mine, and my early artistic abilities were noticed by my family. Although I had only one real doll during my childhood, there were several younger brothers and sisters to play with and help care for. When I was ten, my family and I moved to Ottawa, our nation's capital. In another ten years, I would move to the even bigger city of Toronto to study at the Ontario College of Art. My other studies included dressmaking, which I put to use some years later when I designed and sold my own line of children's clothing under the label Just Pretend. By this time, in the 1980s, I had two young sons who I could dress up in my latest fashions. Jesse and Kerry also became the subjects of several Prismacolour portraits I was enjoying drawing. The beauty and wonder of childhood, it seems, has always been an inspiration to my work in any medium. Eventually, my various creative interests and skills would come together in doll making. My first dolls were made with cloth. When I discovered polymer clays, I began sculpting the type of dolls I still make today. It was a real delight to find such a satisfying creative form, and a pleasant surprise to realize that there were so many others -- artists, collectors and admirers -- who shared my excitement about the world of dolls."
