My name is Olga, I'm from Saint-Petersburg, Russia. I create collectible porcelain ball jointed dolls. Creating dolls is my life, each doll is made with love and great attention to detail.
I've painted for a long time trying to find my style. However, the paintings always lacked this energy, liveliness, and three dimensional feel. That I found in the art of BJD. When I created my first BJD doll, I immediately understood that it's what I want to do and it's what I was looking for. Since the art of bjd is connected with a lot of other areas, I can endlessly experiment and develop a wide array of skills from sewing to creating one of a kind miniature jewelry for my dolls. I love learning something new and developing my craft. Even though a lot of things are already invented, I'm still trying to create something new and experiment with new techniques in a process.
Also I would like to tell you more about my brand "Melian dolls". I have always inspired magical world: elfs, fairies, mermaids, dryads and of course, Tolkien is one of my favorite authors. In the book "The Silmarillion" there is a story about the beautiful Melian who was unmatchable in her beauty, wisdom and talent. She lives in a magic forest Doriat protecting it from evil and outside world. There is peace and harmony in her world. This story inspared me. Image of the Melian is my muse in doll making. Kindness, sincerity, pensive calm and serenity - that's exactly what I'm trying to tell through my art.
