I was born in Russia, in the city of Moscow. Moscow is rich in beauties, sights and places that deserve special attention. Old and new, big and small, modest and luxurious live in it side by side.
But I never felt like a city dweller. I have always been uncomfortable and cramped in the metropolis. And so I am very grateful to my parents that they took me out on summer vacations to my grandparents in the village. There was truly a space for my imagination. I imagined myself now as a forest elf, now as a lord of the wind, now as a queen of a fairy-tale forest people. For me, life in my fantasy world was much more interesting than real life.
It was not a lot with friends. Not everyone shared my love of fantasy. It was calmer and more convenient for me to invent a friend for myself and settle in my fairy-tale world.
After school she studied to be a fashion designer. After graduation, I got married and had a daughter. While the baby was growing up, I worked on her. It was at this time that I learned about the Teddy bears.
At first I decided to try to sew a bear just out of curiosity, then for relatives and friends … And then I was so drawn in that it was useless to resist. Then a son was born, then another baby. Now I deal exclusively with the house and my creatures, the love for the creation of which I have not lost for a minute.
When I was studying to be a fashion designer, I was very fond of lectures by a painting teacher. They were surprisingly filled, after them I wanted to create, create, plunge into the creative world, forgetting about everything in the world. He taught me to transfer images from my fantasy to paper.
I cannot answer the question exactly how much time I spend on this or that work. This is very subjective. It all depends on the mood, on the inner strength, on the desire to create. A job can be “born” in a day, or it can be born within a month.
I buy all materials exclusively in special stores.
Recently, the greatest interest in me has been the desire to convey live emotions and character in my creatures. I also began to listen to myself more often, and it became interesting for me to discover new facets in myself, and my beings help me in this.
Since 2014 I have been taking part in international exhibitions: FANTANIMA (2014-2020), Autumn Doll Ball (2018, 2019), MOSFAIR 2017, Kukla 2019.
