The inspiration for her dolls comes from everything reaches her imagination from books and films to a simple gesture or a piece of fabric. The art dolls are made from paperclay, acrylic paint, textile, mixed-media and have hand-made clothes and accessories. Anna Zueva studied the History of Russian Theatre Costume and even wanted to become a fashion designer; fortunately for the art world, her present occupation is much more fulfilling.
