Hey Folks! I got this book in the mail the other day, called “100 famous people from Novokuznetsk City”, and it turns out I’m in it along with 99 other individuals of significance, such as artists, writers, athletes, journalists, politicians, scientists and war heroes!


Holly molly… War heroes. How on earth did I make it in there? I mean… I’m only a doll-maker…

And still, I feel deeply, incredibly honored to be included in the history of my city. I’ll keep making you proud, Novokuznetsk!

    You deserve all the recognition you get and more! I can’t speak for everyone, obviously, but for me you are far more inspiring than any war hero could ever be.

  8. I do not strange because you’re not a craftswoman’re a great artist. Your creations are true works of art. Your dolls are not empty works, but seem to have feelings, besides being beautiful. Kisezzzzzz and congratulations to you.

    Congratulations! You are an artist that works in the medium of porcelain and now resin! They should be very proud!
    The picture I had in my head of the Siberian area was of little snowy cabins with wolves and reindeer running around! This is quite a large built up place! Very impressive!

  11. Congratulations Marina, well done well deserved. This is a result of hard work, determination, discipline and a vision.

    Hats off to you!

    Woow! Congratulations! I imagine how you must feel now! You deserve it 100 000%!

  13. Astera says:

    Well, you are surprised, but as you can tell, none of us is! It’s great that your contribution to the art world are recognized also in an official way, though. Congratulations!

  14. Stefy says:

    I’m absolutely not surprised either Marina!!! You are not only “a doll maker” as you say, you are a worldwide known artist who created something unique, which comes out deeply from your heart. You inspire so many people with your dolls and make people dream and feel happy!!! I bet you are feeling honoured and proud, but I would say that your town should be as proud and honoured to have you as their citizen. You absolutely deserve this recognition! Congratulation!!!!!

  15. Annina says:

    oh wow, congratulations Marina, i’m so happy for you, and, not surprised either! :D

  16. Marina says:

    LOL…..Reindeer. I’ve never even seen one.

    I come from one of the largest, industrialized Siberian cities of the South. Wild animals did not roam our streets. In fact, I’ve seen more of them in 15 years here in Vancouver, than I ever did in 15 years in Siberia. Weird.

    Well, I’m glad there was no outrage over me being in this book.
    Although Chad WAS outraged that the NHL Columbus Bluejackets goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky and my fellow Novokuznetsk-ite, didn’t make the book.

  17. Orangey says:

    Outrage! Outrage!

    The book is not in English! Outrage! Kidding.

    What a great honor, I am very happy for you! It’s an honor you deserve, you truly make art!~
