Interview with Artists I Admire: Anastasiasdolls

I think you will agree that making art dolls involves having acquired a lot of skills. Today I am happy to present to you a fellow member of the  Etsy Greek Street Team, Anastasia, whose one of a kind work I really love!

Tell us a few things about yourself.

Hi! I'm Anastasia. I live in the city I was born in, Athens, with my husband, our 4 children and our 2 beautiful cats.
I have experience with several art forms, like painting and jewelry. Dollmaking came into my life 2 years ago and has become a passion. I began making dolls as a hobby, but people liked them a lot, so I started selling them to those around me. Last year I opened my little Etsy shop.

What are your favorite materials and colors?

I love clay, old fabrics, lace and beads. My favorite color is black.

Favorite themes and things that inspire you.

A lot of things can inspire me. A movie, an old photograph, a man in the street. And childhood memories. You see, I grew up in a house with 3 older sisters, and so many dolls!

What do you do in your free time?

I like to go shopping for old objects, meeting my friends and going to the cinema. I love thrillers!

Thank you Anastasia! You can follow Anastasia's wonderful blog, and you can even find her on Youtube!
