The Maker

I'm Ioanna Tsouka, a teacher for children with disabilities by day, but I moonlight as a doll maker. 

I started making dolls in August 2010, but had many long-time pauses in between, and I am completely self-taught. 

I created "Anima ex Manus" in March 2015, when I decided to leave my country (Greece) and start a new life in a Northern European city, a new beginning that took all the weight off my shoulders, in a way that I can breathe free again.
