Creedy started by creating dolls using other artists' molds. In 1991, she saw the photo of a doll sculpted by Dianna Effner in a magazine and was impressed. Satisfied with what she achieved, Creedy bought more molds and worked at her craft for a year. "In 1992, I decided to sculpt my own, " Creedy said.
I entered my first doll in a competition in 1993, won a blue ribbon, and the rest was history! One of Creedy's riskiest ventures was her emigration from South Africa to the United States in 1996.
