Noel Cruz is one of the most versatile & distinguished repaint artists in the doll community.He was born in the Philippines in a poor family and from an early age has been involved in household chores. Being a child with no toys Noel discovered another outlet for his creative young mind: art.
Every day he spent the few moments of free time he had doodling on any peice of paper he could find and his newfound hobby quickly became a growing passion. At the age of 12, peering into his neighbor’s window, Noel saw on the television set the 1974 telecast of the Miss Universe Pageant. Having for the first time seen so many different beautiful faces, Noel took his new fascination to the canvas and from then on focused on creating portraits.
These dolls now lay in the proud hands of various collectors all over the world. Many of which have also been featured in several magazines and articles.
