My name is Afroditi Tzavara. I create my art in Athens Greece, where live with my family. My artistic work, started with art lessons of painting. I continued with mural paintings, and jewelry making. But sculpting, is what I love the most.
I started sculpting a few years back, making figurines with ceramic clay. After a lot of research, I found the Ooak Art Dolls and the polymer clay. Polymer clay allowed me to make lots of little details witch I love the most in my artistic expression. I was finally able to create my sculptures as i had imagined them in my own fantasy world.
The art doll for me is the creation of an artist. It can have any form or size and it can be made with any material.
It is not a doll to be played with as a toy. It already has a tale to tell…
The artist’s tale, that comes from his or her imagination.
You are welcome to try to listen to it ….
