Hello, my name is Natali. I live and work in Duisburg, Germany.
From my early childhood on, I began to show interest in art, especially drawing and painting. Studying in the art and graphic department in 2003, I started making dolls – first theatrical and then the author’s collection. After moving to Germany, I was finally captured by Teddy’s World forever.
Now I work in different directions: sculptural dolls, portraits, caricatures; Teddy bears, naturalistic soft sculptures. I love experiments with new materials. And my special love is dressed characters as if descended from illustrations! Each of them tells their own story…
By the way, through illustrating I discovered this side of myself and began to create my heroes in reality from my own illustrations. Now I am a member of the Author’s doll section of the Creative Union of Artists of Decorative and Applied Arts of Russia. I am also a regular participant in the largest international puppet exhibitions in Germany, Holland, Russia and Japan. My works have been repeatedly awarded diplomas of various competitions. I am the winner and laureate of many international awards for the puppet world and the world of Teddy. See you all soon!
