“Doll makers often attribute their artistic fascinations; some may say compulsions, to the enchantment of their childhood gifts and pleasures. Others arrive at this particular art form through exploring the unending styles and structures inherent in sculpting human, animal and mystical figures with an array of materials.
Roxanna Maria’s art is grounded in a childhood Christmas gift of a ballerina doll that she was persuaded to give to a less fortunate little girl. She said, “I understood the concepts of generosity and kindness, but I was heartbroken.” She has won awards for her work in both the UK and internationally. Roxanna has two very different collections, with pieces from the Sculpture Collection being housed in the famous Spielzeug Welten Museum (Puppenhaus Museum) in Basel Switzerland.”
