Irina Verkhgradskaya

A Story of Art and Russian Grandmothers

Using plastic, silk and oil paints, artist Irina Verkhgradskaya creates dolls depicting scenes with Russian grandmothers. Verkhgradskaya's art takes root in her childhood, when she first started it as a hobby that then grew into a career. She has been making these dolls for more than three decades now.
