About the Artist
I am proud to say I am the first brazilian doll artist to have been recognized and well accepted in other countries. When I started creating dolls in 2005 I was the only one in my country and it was difficult to learn by myself. But my passion for dolls never let me give up! I started creating miniature polymer clay fairies and sold all of them to many collectors around the world. During this time my work was published many times in doll magazines.
After two years I began sculpting I won ProSculpt Award, first place in professional category, which made me and my family so proud and gave me a lot of confidence to go on.
Three years later I was teaching people in my country how to sculpt dolls in polymer clay. At the same time I gave a big step in my doll making career creating my own line of porcelain ball jointed dolls.
My first porcelain BJD (Monah) was also the first bjd to be ever made in Brazil.
Some of my porcelain BJDs have won the "Dolls Award of Excellence", two of them in 2013 (Monah and Angelina) and most recently, in 2016 (Emma).
Today the focus of my work is creating porcelain and resin BJDs.
I've been creating limited editions and ooak porcelain BJDs and just started my new line of resin BJDs.
And I also keep teaching people how to sculpt in polymer clay. ♥
