About me








My life and dolls


I loved dolls insanely from the early childhood. When I was 11 years old my grandmother bought me my first Barbie doll. That was my cloud nine. I never even imagined of the profession of a dollmaster so I went to a formal education as an artist and then media art designer. I was always buying different dolls but the idea of making a doll myself never crossed my mind. In 2009 I got a present from my husband Pullip doll Chill. She looked exactly like me, very beautiful with big eyes. There was a plan just to put it on a shelf and just look at her. But I found a Pullip doll forum where I first discovered about asian ball joint dolls. In a couple of months they had a cosplay competition and I won it.


It was very cute and naive. I decided to move forward and started researching into ball joint market. Again, it happenned my husband bought me my first big 70 centimeter ball joint doll from resin. So, I started to paint faceups. It wasn't easy at times, but hard work and insane determination did the job. By 2010 I could do everything myself - faceups, clothes and wigs. BJD customization was the only thing I could think about, I learnt how to create great images of my work and started taking orders for faceups from people all over the world. I was quite popular and expensive as a faceup artist. My collection of ball joint dolls grew as I was acquiring the best pieces of art ever created on the dolls market, Alhimic Labo  Unoa Zero by Alhimic Labo  ,  Volks ,  Dollshe. In 2010 the idea to create my own doll finally struck and I continued to work on the faceups and my own doll from that time. So I still worked with my customers as a faceup artist and started my own doll as a BiDoll brand.
















Now I am very happy to present to you my artist ball joint doll. It is a porcelain ball joint doll. It is very complex but incredibly noble material. I am glad I finally reached one of the top goals in my career.



Thank you
