Often the dolls and sculptures hold a world within a world;
a diorama or miniature theater may be hidden in their chest,
or behind the drapes of their elaborate dress.
They tell fantastical tales of the Spirit World,
Witches & Wolves, Teapot Ghosts, Moth Faeries and many more otherworldly beings.
The work of Pantovola breathes a melancholy breath and has a nostalgic soul,
one which yearns to bygone days, a summer past, a memory in dusk...
Pantovola studied Visual Art at ArtEZ University of the Arts in Arnhem, Netherlands,
and has a background in painting, illustration, stop motion puppet-animation-film and Theater.
Her Art Dolls and Sculptures are held in private collections and exhibits worldwide.
