Hi, my name is Mariana. That's me in the picture! I've been sculpting since I'm four years old. I first started making animals and creatures from TV shows in modelling clay. I always wanted to try polymer clay but since it wasn't sold in my country, I had to wait until I was old enough to order on Amazon to try it, in 2010.
This was my first plushlike creature ever, from 2013!
For me, art that soothes the stress of daily life is really important. So I kept making plushlike creatures, to portray hope, light, tenderness and positivity.
My favorite elements to work with are bright colors, fine detail, swirls and fantasy creatures. Man-made objects like dresses, palaces, jewelry (and of course, plushies) are one of my main inspirations.
Thanks for reading and have a nice day!
