Soft Art from Israel

Hello there,
My name is Anna, and I live and work in Israel.

UNFAMILIAR ART Dolls came about almost by accident few months after my son was born. I sat down in front of the computer, mused about the future and how I want no to return to my old job in hi-tech. Absolutely accidental I read in Internet about textile dolls, tried to do it by myself and… The rest is a history.

The dolls are simply the current manifestation of "me making handmade," which has been a defining theme in my life for as long as I can remember.

My works can be found in private collections in Israel and around the world.Since 2012 my dolls have taken part in annual all-Israeli exhibitions “Doll Miracle”. In August, 2013 I was featured in TV program on 98th Israeli channel,in September 2013 my dolls’ photo appeared on the cover of the popular weekly paper “Ahbar-a-ir”, and in March 2014 television interview about my dolls was featured in 2th Israeli channel.

It's a true joy to make art that brings happiness to others! My Unfamiliar Art Dolls take hours of sculpting, dying and stitching to complete. I use only new fabrics, materials and accessories into the doll's and dress' designs, and prefer natural materials like a wood, cotton and linen.

I sell my work in my own studio and on-line around the world. While UNFAMILIAR ART has become my main focus, I still occasionally take freelance design projects and devote time to teach soft sculpting workshops in each place in Israel.

Thank you for all the wonderful mails! It means so much that you enjoy my work! It is my pleasure to create for you.

With love,

Shop members
