Drew, moulded, sewed since I was a child, played lots with dolls, perhaps, this is one of the reasons of entering theatre faculty of the art school. Then I worked in the drama theater, where the doll model like with a magic stick became a living actor! Then theatral institute, theatre, painting , graphics, work with children and all the time dolls are near me. But now they have won and became my main occupation. What are my dolls made from? Mostly from "Fimo", because this material helps me to carry out the plan, but sometimes the dolls decide themselves from what material they will be made of. It can be not only plastic but textile, paper, wood or any other material. Themes of work are various, only the one rule is constant - dolls have to be kind!
