Му Name is Natalia. I am from Russia and currently live in California, US.
I never attended Art school and do not hold any diploma in art. My education is in a totally different field, although I always loved creating things in my free time. I made my first teddy bear in 2014, and I think that art doll making started then. The creation of teddy bears quickly changed into something different, I started sculpting, was making dolls and then gradually it all moved into a creepy-cute direction and that is when I started making odd and gloomy creatures.
I love working with fabric. Most of my creatures have fabric bodies and clay-sculptured limbs and heads. When I sculpt, I use air dry clays, usually “La Doll” and sometimes “Paperclay”. I also love working with wood and had some works made of wood. I also use fur, mohair, viscose, beads, cotton wool and different paints.
