About the Artist

My name is Amelia Williams of Amelia’s Babies. I am a proud mother and grandmother and live with my husband, 4 dogs and 2 house bunnies on a breath-taking gorge in the suburb of Kloof, Kwa-Zulu Natal in South Africa.
Before I discovered re-borning in 2010, I immersed myself in the art off oil painting, specializing in commissioned portraits and paintings of children. I was fortunate to do commissions for some local “celebrities” in South Africa.
I also played and created with pottery, needlework and some other crafts. I quickly got carried away by these babies and as a self-taught artist I have studied, re-searched and invested immense amounts of time into this fascinating form off art.
I have admired and studied the work of other artist’s, worked through endless tutorials and invested a lot of time, and money to teach myself this art form and during this process developed my own unique painting style.
The learning never ends; I am constantly experimenting with new ideas and techniques and am still working hard to always improve my work.
I have recently ventured into sculpting these babies and I am very proud to say that I have created 2 full body babies, and one full limb kit in silicone. These babies have been created from scratch by me, from sculpting, to making the moulds, pouring the silicone, painting and rooting!

My motto in life: “If your dreams don’t scare you – they are not big enough”.
