Irina is a zoologist by education, and uses her background in biology to fulfill her creativity as a full-time artist and teacher. Her favorite characters are insects, but all of her creatures have their own tales and personalities.

All of Irina’s fun felted critters all have one thing in common – irony and good humor, and this is exactly what is so in demand in today’s world and what she really enjoys expressing through her felt art.

Since becoming interested in felting in 2008, Irina has been actively involved in public creative life, taking part in exhibitions (Doll Time, Doll Art, Fashionable Lyalka, Moscow Fair, TeddyMir, Handicraft Formula), festivals (Festival of Felting Masters, Wool) , conferences (NIADA, USA), published articles in magazines (Doll Master, My Moleskine, Mom’s Dad’s Magazine) and more!

Fate gave Irina a happy opportunity to touch the world of puppetry, and she devotes herself to creativity and teaching with great pleasure. Thanks to her humble contribution, more joy and beauty are added to the world through her creatures.
