Dolls–motankas created by this master can now be found in eight countries of the world. Two of them are in Africa: in Ethiopia and South African Republic. The artist does not keep a large collection of motankas (toys wound from cloth – images of young, middle aged and old women) at home. She makes them either to orders or as presents.

Creative work

After several experiments with authentic singing the master tried to create a motanka and it fell to her liking. In the process of creating dolls the master is attracted by a possibility of combining original Ukrainian tradition and friendly attitude to the environment, because the author uses materials usually thrown away as waste: pieces of fabrics, old clothes and threads. A doll wound using simple ancient technique is completed by clothes in traditional colors, with elements of national patterns, embroidery and ornaments of certain Ukrainian regions.
