The world is filled with so much hate, so much negative energy. Material Girl’s art work is counter to all of that!
Art can make you cry, think, be fearful, confused or amused. Michalina Eisenberg’s is to make you laugh, give you a chuckle, to lighten your day. Silly things happen to all of us and she likes to show that in her work, giving you something you can relate to; a little slice of life.
Originally a “serious artist”, going to school for Advertising and Graphic Design at Paier College of Art in Hamden Connecticut, Michalina journeyed through advertising, graphic design, oil figure painting until she found her way to doll making and sculpting.
Michalina is a full time fabric artist and a doll maker. Starting at a young age she worked with fabric sewing, making quilts and dolls. Her first dolls started out as a simple rag doll design. Today she makes all of her own patterns and designs working with cloth and mixed media to create the art pieces you see today.
The human form is her inspiration when making her dolls, changing up the normal figure from elongating the legs to making giant feet. Of all the different art forms she has tried creating her unique and droll dolls gives her the most pleasure.
