I create dolls made out of air-dry clay, paper clay and felted wool.  


What is your primary medium?


I love to create with air dry clay and paper clay but my favorite material is wool. I love needle felting. 



How long have you been a doll maker?

 I discovered needle felting in 2009 and the next year I've started to work with clay My first doll was made out of my handmade papier mache ( toilet tissue ), and her eyes was handcrafted by me. Here is my first doll Ariadni.
