My mother was a very talented self-taught painter and drawer,who never got any real chance to share her talents with the world.I too tried to paint, but finally realized that I didn't heritage any of her talents.
So often I was thinking ( feeling sorry for myself lol )WHY I have to have this strong desire to create when I have no talents at all?
But then, about five years ago everything changed!
Just by an accident, I met a lady who made beautiful polymer clay beads and I asked if she could teach me... I loved the clay as a material but same time I felt that beads just are not my "thing" ... And then one night while surfing on eBay I saw all those beautiful fairies and mermaids and trolls and unicorns And I just realized that I want to be a "Doll Maker", and nothing else!
I found that huge missing part of myself: And after all: I DO have part of my moms talents in me, I just needed this 3-dimensional medium to bring it all alive. My brain just is not working in 2 dimensional level!
Last five years I have used countless hours just practicing and trying to get better. It is a painstakingly slow process for me, yet I love every minute of it!
I love to create "Story book dolls" using the Air dry or the Polymer clay combined with mixed media. I want to create dolls and figurines which make people smile and wonder ... maybe even remember some wonderful moments from their own childhood...
