About the Artist


My name is Ildiko. I was born in Hungary, and have been living in England now for quite a while.

I am a mother of two boys. We also have a well behaved dog and a cat.  

My passions are nature, travelling,  being outdoors, and getting creative.


As a child, I always loved playing with dolls. I could spend hours playing with their hair and dressing them.


In my youth, I spent lots of time travelling, and while I was in England studying nutrition I happened to meet some amazing people who were connected to the Steiner movement. From then I became very interested in the philosophy of Steiner education.


Soon after this, I was lucky enough to be able to attend a dollmaking course in a German Steiner school. I enjoyed it a lot, but after that, I was still too busy with moving about to get into doll making.


Only when I moved here, to England to live, and had my boys, I started making Waldorf dolls for them first and later for the children of my friends. When my children did not need dolls any more, I  decided to make Waldorf dolls to sell.


I love the experience of creating Waldorf dolls. I have been making them for sale since 2004. It still fills me with amazement how a simple material slowly becomes a little being, a personality, who could become a close friend of someone.




I have a lovely helping hand who make dolls clothes that are available on my website here for sale. A wonderful lady, who used to be a dressmaker, sews beautiful dresses that fit my dolls.


Often I have no time to make  additional outfits, but with the help of her, I can offer my customers extra clothes. Sometimes I use these outfits to dress my dolls, but mostly for dressing the dolls I sell, I make the dresses myself. It is lots of fun designing the outfit of each doll. I must say I have the tendency to collect too much materials, whenever I go near a fabric shop.


I still love making dolls and enjoy the challenge when someone asks me to make something I haven't made before. All my dolls are handcrafted, they are all unique, and have their own personalities.

First I created mainly traditional Waldorf dols, but in the past years I have experimented with making Natural Fiber Art Dolls, which are more for collectors than for children. It is really nice making them, but I also enjoy making the more simple dolls that often become little friends of children.
