Lorella Marcheggiani Falconi was born in the city of Pescara, Italy. As a child art always fascinated her, and she was always encouraged by her family to create and pursue any art form or craft that she was interested in.
“No art or craft has ever been able to keep me captive the way doll-making has. It allows me to use all the skills I have acquired over the years to create each doll. I never tire of creating dolls. I feel empowered to express myself as an artist and I continually strive to improve my abilities.”
Lorella began making dolls in 1988, first working on antique reproductions and later creating original porcelain dolls. Over time her work has evolved and now creates Ball jointed Dolls (BJD) in Porcelain and Resin. Her inspiration is drawn from family, friends and fond memories of her childhood.
