Valentyna is a doll-maker from Kyiv. Once, she received a motanka as a present and later started creating such dolls herself. She says that the woman’s internal strength is transferred to the doll that is why dolls of each master are unique. 

Creative work

As a rule, images of her dolls come to Valentyna in her dreams. The moment she starts creating a doll she feels the doll come alive and suggest what it wants to be like. The master creates dolls in silence; she also has a small assistant – a cat Sashko – that is always watching the process of creation.
As materials for dolls the master uses wood, herbs, flax, cotton, different threads and beads.
