Helena Oplakanska

Helena Oplakanska is from Ukraine. She has a degree in Art. Helena has created dolls for many years. Helena's dolls have been featured in international exhibitions in Moscow, Kiev, St. Petersburg and Prague. Today, dolls hand-crafted by Helena are in private collections and in galleries in different countries all over the world.

Helena seeks to convey many feelings and emotions with her dolls. Many tiny details help with this. The character of the doll must invoke the emotions she is trying to convey.   It is the main task of this very talented artist.

Her hand-made dolls are created with Super Sculpey, antique fabrics, textiles and leather shoes.

Dolls are generally as a rule 16-18" (40-45 cm). All dolls are one-of-a-kind (OOAK) and never created twice.
