I apologize for being absent from my blog for the past while. I have really been busy this past month. Some really exciting things have happened, from making a doll for a famous fashion designer, to preparing shots and interviews for a couple upcoming magazine features (Haute, FDQ), and of course, making dolls for orders.

I also have a really exciting project that I’m working on that will be featured in the upcoming issue of Fashion Doll Quarterly. This is a doll with a twist, and she’s dying to meet everyone.

Back to the studio, I’m just wrapping up my intense reclusive work period, and I’ll be back making regular posts soon.

    Oh, Marina…ever since I saw your work for the first time (just last week) in “Haute Doll”, I simply couldn’t stop thinking about you and your work. Your work ethic is beyond most, and it’s so great to know that there is an artist on this planet who works at the level of her gifts. You are an amazing gift to all of us who appreciate cutting edge master artistry. You haven’t lost track of the magic of childhood, and have found a way to fuse all of that magic into adult doll art. Thank you for all of your hard work. You’re so generous to enter news on your blog. Don’t know how you do it all. Bravo, beauty!!! Can’t wait to own one of your masterpieces. Hope you find time to contribute to yourself in the midst of your hard work. xoxo Katie ( also a doll artist, in Chicago)

    P.S. I have to add one more thing, Marina. I identified with your remarks about being disenchanted with your classes in college. I had the same experience many years ago, while preparing to become an actress. It was a very negative and damaging experience in a university that had a great reputation. After struggling to overcome two years at that place, I gave up…ran off with my high school sweetheart, had a baby, and then married him. When that proved to be a disaster, I moved to New York and realized my dream the Broadway stage. I worked for 25 years onstage, in films, and tv…so all of this is to say that the bitter memories of my college experience began to pale as I saw that the dreams of childhood couldn’t be stamped out by teachers who didn’t have the tools to give me what I needed. After retirement I started making dolls in secret. I haven’t been able to relate to any I’ve seen in magazines or galleries…until YOU…and it has added a spark to my life. Thank you for reading.- Katie

    i think that, despite the fact that this doll is promoting women in professional careers (such as sergeon and news anchor), to me it still seems to be sticking with the spirit of the barbie; flashy, tight clothes; and the need to be as skinny as possible, as demonstrated by the fact that her lower legs are as skinny as her upper arms (shivers). also, the fact that her clothes (which say barbie in computer keys) has a picture of a monitor on a background of binary. kinda scary. this is how mattel describes it:Barbie® I Can Be…™ dolls and accessories empower girls to play out different roles and “try on” fabulous careers, including computer engineer, the first Barbie® profession chosen by popular vote! Always a reflection of the times, this digital diva engineers the perfect geek-chic look, with hot pink accessories and sleek gadgets to match. The inspiring set also comes with a special code that unlocks career-themed content online, for even more digital play (how fitting)!this is supposed to be about her job, but the description is all about her clothes. mattel, think about how you advertise your products
