Ioanna is a teacher for children with disabilities by day,
but she moonlights as a doll maker.
She started making dolls in August 2010,
but she had many long-time pauses in between.
She created "Anima ex Manus" in March 2015.
All of her dolls are 100% handmade and no moulds are used.
Her characters blossom from a magical world,
of a past and a future that has never existed.
Secrets and stories are hidden within the expressions of her creatures,
which are lifting the veil of our world, revealing the parallel universe of grotesque,
peculiar, whimsical and anthropomorphic oddities - an entry into the unknown,
the disorientating and the mentally deranging experiences.
