I began my artistic career in theater arts and spent fifteen years traveling throughout provincial towns in Russia, where I created scenarios, constructed stages and puppets. During those years, I learned a great deal about theater arts, staging, photography and documentation, and exhibitions. I have since participated in exhibitions in Bulgaria, Russia, Lithuania, Czechoslovakia, Germany, France, Scotland, and the United States,  

all of which have had the deepest impact on my art and my identity as an artist.It was my work in Theater that inspired me to become an independent artist, and it continues to deeply inspire my work. The dolls I fabricate become living creatures: creatures with which I could laugh or cry, or even fall in love. Though they are constructed with incredible artistic precision, they live beyond the artist.
