Doll Artist Marina Bychkova was born and raised on the shores of the Siberian river Tom, in the city of Novokuznetsk. From early childhood she was interested in the nature of the dolls and fell in love with them for ever. At the age of nine years old, her family immigrated to Canada. There she graduated from the Institute of Arts. Marina has always loved dolls, but in 2002, her love for them has grown into profession. After a long search of the media, Marina found perfect for her designs and ideas material – porcelain. Her very detailed dolls belong to the world of contemporary art – sculpture, painting, jewelry art.

All the dolls and clothes and all the accessories Marina makes manually. She pays a lot of attention to the anatomic and visual side, creating a unique image of each doll, bringing her art to such a degree of perfection that sometimes it seems that this is not a doll at all, but quite lively little people.

“The Cathedral was born out my memories of Italy, particularly the beautiful, jewel-encrusted reliquaries in the treasuries of the Vatican, and the magnificent and ethereal Duomo di Milano. These were the places that I had dreamed about seeing since I was a little girl”.
