Project: Playing cards
Slogan: Play your solitaire!

Our lives are as complex, tricky, and convoluted as card games. And we ourselves are like different cards: some of us are romantic «Hearts», some are fatal”Spades”, the others are self-confident  brilliant «Diamonds» or mysterious «Clubs».

Do you remember the song of Sting?

«He deals the cards as a meditation

And those he plays never suspect

He doesn’t play for the money he wins

He don’t play for respect.»

I ampresent in the art dolls world since 2000.

For many yearsI’ve been lucky to cooperatewith the Vakhtanov Gallery, Central House of Atists, Moscow, Russia.

I never miss the chance to participate in various exhibitions of art dolls: “Art of dolls”, “Time of dolls”, “Spring ball of dolls” (Russia), Muñec Art (Spain), The Big Event (Netherlands), Milano Expo-2015 (Italy), personal exposition in European Parliament (2015, Brussels, Belgium).

More than once I won various competitions and awards. But it is really hard to list all my prizes because I never focused on them. Yes, it is a pleasure and honor to be awarded by the high jury. But for me still the main thing, which makes me go on working, is the wish to make a doll, charge it with the best emotion and let it live in the world. For her to share thewarmth with other people.

Most of my dolls are in private collections in Russia, Great Britain, USA, France, Spain, Holland.

From 2013 to 2015, I’ve been working as the Art Director of Phylozoia (Portugal) – a project of the Council of Europe, which aimed the creation of collection of art dolls in European national dresses.

I am the member of the International Art Foundation.

For many years I have been giving workshops in Russia and Portugal on creating sculpture dolls, dolls from papier-mache and textiles.
