The Musical Angels Project.
Among my works there are many images of angels and they are very different. But among them there appeared the classical ones, as they are usually depicted in the design of cathedrals and in medieval manuscripts. To create these works, I was inspired by paintings by artists of the early Renaissance, book miniatures and sculptures by medieval masters. I was especially interested in musical instruments in the hands of angels. I wanted to learn about these instruments and make angels playing them. So far there are only three angels, but I hope to continue this project in the future.

Member of the Creative Union of Artists of Decorative and Applied Arts. Section: author’s and art doll.
I am engaged in the creation of art dolls and decorative interior toys.
For me, a doll is a small story, impression, mood or memory, conveyed in a tangible form. I like that an art doll combines different types of creativity and you can tell a lot by choosing not words, but fabrics, paints, gestures, facial expressions, hair color, texture of the material and style of the outfit …
Looking at the doll, everyone can come up with their own story.
My favorite themes are fairy tale characters, magical creatures, angels. I also like to make dolls based on paintings by artists and on the subject of poetry.
Favorite materials – self-hardening masses, papier-mâché.
