About the Author
Naturally artistic, R. John Wright always felt his path would lead to a creative career. Born in Michigan, John attended Wayne State University in a liberal arts program with an emphasis on art and literature. Following college, John traveled to New England and settled in New Hampshire where he met his future wife and creative partner, Susan - a recent graduate of the University of New Hampshire. In 1976, the couple formed R. John Wright Dolls, Inc. which has delighted collectors worldwide with beautifully designed and hand crafted dolls and animals. These award-winning creations include many licensed items. All are designed by John and Susan Wright and produced in numbered limited editions at the R. John Wright workshop in Bennington, Vermont.
