This is not directly related to my recent projects, but does have everything to do with dolls. Rather, with my dream of the day when a doll is no longer thought of as just a toy, but a separate art form.
Last week I’ve had a the pleasure of meeting the Honorary Consul of the Russian Embassy in Canada, Mr. Bardin, had paid a visit to my studio. He can be seen in the picture holding my new rubenesque doll.
And since such serious people have begun to pay attention to dolls, it may be that my dream will soon come true!
I am doubly pleased that the Russian diplomats in Canada are interested in the life of Russian citizens abroad.
