About me

artist Jelena Dashunina-Naidjonok

Jelena Dashunina-Naidjonok


My name is Jelena Dashunina-Naidjonok. 'm an art doll artist. The place where I live and create my own magical world is called Ozolnieki (from Latvian - the land of oaks). I often find my inspiration in the beauty of Ozolnieki lake and the forest that lies beside it.

I always knew that I want to become an artist. I was twelve when I decided to enter an art school. It took me 5 hours to get there and back home. Even though long way made me exhausted I never thought of quitting art school. I felt like I belong there more than anywhere else.

After graduating from school I chose wood, stone and bone carving as my major at the Abramtsevo Art Industrial College. The skills and knowledge I got during 4 years of studying there made my dream come true, I became an artist.

I was not so long ago when I first found out about art dolls. I made the first doll out of curiosity and ever since then I'm in love with this branch of visual arts. I feel like there's spark of life in each of my dolls. They all have different characters and unusual stories behind them. And what I like the most is a magic, which brings adults to the world of fairytale when they look at their favourite art doll. I hope one of my dolls can bring you to that world.
