Dear friends!

Welcome to the magic world of puppet art.

Modern puppet art gives a lot of joy, surprises by unique tricks and most unexpected transformations.

Any our show, without extra baggage costs, can be delivered easily to any point of the World and can be demonstrated on absolutely any stage.

I create, design and make my puppets by myself. Each of my puppet was created with the use of new materials and technologies and includes unique design solutions.

My puppets live on stage only because of spectators love.

Thank you for your love.
