Enchanting porcelain beauties

Marina Bychkova, originally from Siberia, accomplished her doll making art in Vancouver, Canada after studying Fine Art at Emily Carr Institute and taking advanced jewelry design classes. The result took shape as the Enchanted Doll the artist’s own label of exquisite porcelain ball jointed dolls. There are many doll artists out there but few of them can create a thrilling universe of their own. The name was inspired by Paul Gallico’s fictional short story called Enchanted Doll, “where a young woman creates dolls with so much love that they enchant people at first sight with their compelling, delicate, life-like beauty”. I think we all can agree that Marina Bychkova brought this story to life.
