My name is Marina Martinaitene or Marina Blue - the artist behind the name of *Marina Blue Studio*
I live in Stockholm, Sweden and I have been making dolls since 2006. I started as a reborn artist but also started to create my own OOAK sculpts from polymer clay in 2007. Since then my works have been noticed and I have received several awards, but my most valuable and precious award is that my babies have found their new happy Mommies in almost every corner of the World.
Making dolls was just a hobby for me in the beginning but now I do it as my full time job on professional basis.
In 2016 I started to make my own solid silicone babies. My first mini silicone Lucy edition was moded and poured by wonderful Angela Lewis in USA. Now I am working on my own silicone editions that will be entirely made by Marina Blue Studio from sctratch to finished silicone baby.
Dolls are my love and passion and I leave a piece of my heart and in every baby I create.I see a soul in every doll I start to work with and each doll is an excuting adventure and fun. I have developed my own style and tecniques but I am always open to new knowledge and trying to be aware of everything new that is happening in the wonderful world of dolls.
I am a member of many artist guilds and forums to be able to keep my work up to date and to be able to use the most modern tecniques and secrets of the art.
All materials I use are non toxic non fading and durable and I do everything for my babies to become a heirloom and family treasures that can be passed from generation to generation.
