Born in Kelowna and raised in Vernon, both in British Columbia, Reva Schick drew and made paper dolls as a child and also remembers dressing the dolls in glamorous clothing.
'We couldn't afford dolls, so I had to make my own,' she says. Reva claims her creative ability is something inspired from above. 'It's just something I have that's a god-given talent. I can't explain to anyone what the characteristics of a doll face are, or about its dimensions. Once I start sculpting, whatever expression comes out, comes out!'
Reva and her doll sculpts have received numerous nominations and awards in 1998 for 'Best New Doll' and 'Best New Doll Artist' at the International Collectibles Exposition. She has continued to garner DOTY (Doll of the Year) Awards and Dolls Awards of Excellence for her beautiful doll creations.
From the moment Reva joined forces with Middleton Doll, the magic of her sculpting was recognized by the industry and collectors alike.
Reva Schick worked with Lee Middleton for ten years where she created many wonderful dolls which granted her renown world-wide.
