Colliii.com: Raquel, why did you decide to sponsor the Colliii Awards 2012?
Raquel: I have just changed my branding image to compromise my three business activities (reborn dolls, supplies and reborn lessons) under one sole brand: "All Reborn". Is there a better way to "reborn" other than sponsoring the most prestigious and highly valued competition, Coliii Awards?
Besides, it is a good way to announce what All Reborn can offer to other countries such as Portual, Italy... and Latin America.
Colliii.com: What is the doll market in Spain like at the moment? Do you think extra exposure through the Colliii Awards will help you as a business and other artists
Raquel: Fortunately, there are now more and more collectors in Spain who appreciate and value what we do. The first Spanish "Reborn Dolls Show" that I have recently held in Madrid along with another reborn artist and friend, has helped as a way to promote Reborn Art and has been of benefit to all Spanish artists, since we have achieved extensive media coverage -TV, press, radio. This has given rise to new artists and collectors.
As I have expressed above, I believe Coliii Awards are a good way to announce what All Reborn can offer to the Reborn world and of course, to promote myself as an artist.
Colliii.com: What is your favorite part of the competition, maybe looking at the other dolls or the results and winners?
Raquel: What is my favorite part? Where Raquel Recuero appears as nominated artist. Joking apart, I love to see my co-artists work and realize how the level keeps improving every year.
Colliii.com: What plans do you have for this year?
Raquel: This year I would like to delve in the challenging art of sculpting, which I believe is fascinating. Moreover, my dream is to someday produce my own kits, whether sculpted by myself or by other artists.
