Anna Terekhova

My name is Anna Terekhova. I am a doll artist from Moscow, Russia.
I am creating art dolls since 2013. All my dolls are one of a kind and unique. I regularly participate at  art doll exhibitions and various thematic competitions. Nowadays my works are in private collections all over the world.
I work with different materials but prefer Ladoll Premix, a self-hardening cellulose-based polymer clay for sculpting. For outfit I always choose natural materials - silk and cotton and use, depending on the idea, both vintage and modern fabrics and lace.
I create both static and movable dolls. Large, up to 1 meter tall, and small, about 40-50 sm. Each doll has its own unique charm. The ability to put a movable doll in any position makes it completely alive... And in static dolls I love a beautifully captured moment - a turn of the head, movement of a hand, hair flying in the wind ...
