Elena Tuminskaya

I was born in 1970. Educated at the Kuban State Art University at the Department of Graphics. At first I started working with porcelain: I made porcelain fireplaces, ceramic objects, vases, etc. After that, 8 years ago, I started making dolls, as I had long wanted to make them. At this time, various materials for creating dolls began to appear on sale, as well as educational articles in magazines. I took a master class on making dolls to learn the technique. I already knew how to sculpt and created porcelain figurines.

I make dolls in my favorite fantasy genre. I try to sculpt the dolls themselves realistic, but already the costumes and the plot are fantasy. I have invented a new genre - the doll in the picture. The background is painted in oil on the picture and the doll is embedded there. The genre is new - no one has done this before.

Two years ago I graduated assistantship of the Russian Academy of Arts. The defense of the diploma was on dolls. I participate in all international exhibitions in Moscow. She took part in the international exhibition in Tbilisi, Georgia twice. I also took part in the international exhibition in Preili, Latvia twice. I create dolls for sale.
