I am a teddy bear collector, a restorer, and an author of toys in the teddy style. For me, bears are not just a hobby or leisure, they are my life! I have been interested in crafts and DIY since my childhood, so now as well as creating teddy bears, I am fond of decoupage, ceramics, embroidery, knitting, felting, creating cotton Christmas decorations and there are still so many techniques I would love to master in the future! Travelling is another passion of mine. Besides, I am a mother of a six-year-old son, who is my biggest inspiration and the most loyal critic of my work! My works have found their homes in different countries, on different continents, and it is such a pleasure and an honour to get letters of praise and support from the people, who were able to see and feel a part of my soul through my work. After all, everything I create is a tiny reflection of my personality!
