In this section I tell alittle about myself, my artistic path tha led me to the point where I started Gift of Mercury with my partner and husband Gleb
I was born in a small town, and art has always been my passion. At the age of 5, I started attending an art school where I explored various courses, from ceramics to painting and design.
Even as a child, I had a knack for crafting and selling things at local fairs. I loved making handmade gifts for my friends and family.
My youth diplomas
Laureate of the 1st round of the All-Russian stage of the international competition of children's drawings UNESCO in Troyes (France)
Certificate of participation in the Review of 8th International Biennanle of Terracotta Whistle
2nd degree Diploma, nomination "Graphics", the Interregional competition-festival of musical and artistic miniatures "Young Talents of Rosatom"
Later, during university, my husband Gleb and I ventured into selling our art at craft fairs and festivals.
To our surprise, our paintings and cards didn't sell well, but people were fascinated by our handmade toys. Inspired by this, we decided to focus on toys and thus our small brand was born.
From that point on, we poured our hearts into creating whimsical toys that captured the imagination of others. It's been an incredible journey fueled by our love for art and the joy of sharing it with the world.
