1984 Start making porcelain-dolls as a hobby. The first time I do reproduction of antique dolls.
1986 I create my first Artistdolls.
1987 I introduced the result of my work for the first time at the Nuremberg-Toy-Fair to a wide audience. Besides, I achieved a so big success with my creations that almost as of course in June, 1987 the production of porcelain dolls became my profession. During the following years a wide spectrum of different doll children originated in limited edition. Many of these designs were realised as a one of a kind.
In this time I also attend many shows and competitions and met other dollmakers, become friendship with them.
Successful Cooperation with the German company Sigikid,
1999 Bayreuth. I make in each year the models for a Angelika Mannersdorfer-Vinyl-Collection.
1993-95 Exhibit at the New-York-Toy-Fair
1996/97 Testing and sculpting a new doll line: Miniature dolls for dollhouses in 1:12 scale.
First exhibit the new line at Nuremberg-Toy-Fair.
With my miniatures I can realise for example to telling whole stories in stage form. In the meantime almost every life situation with my miniatures can be shown. From the preemie in the arm of the nurse up to granny and grandpa at the bench before the house.
Since 2007 I make especially one-of-a-kinds and special projects for different customers: private collections, private museums and museums all over the world.
Since this time I enlarge my program. From now I make not only miniatures for dollhouses, now I create artistdolls in 1:12 scale for artistdolls-collectors.
Since 2015 Not only the “real” life is interesting for me. I design now Fantasy-Dolls and Fairy’s too: the “3-F-People”, which visit us from a far away planet, are my first “outer spaced family”.
Also I write a little story about this people to introduce them. Of course I create all there playthings, puppets and puppies too.
In 2017 the “3-F-People” (3-F means: funny, fuzzy, flummox) became their first “cousins” descend from the fairyland.
Since the very beginning, I presenting my creations all over the world at many national and international fairs, shows and other exhibitions. They are also exhibited in museums in Europe, USA and Japan
