Sometimes when I find these rare serene pools of magic and inspiration my selfish streak comes through and I want to keep them to myself for secret, indulgent pick me up moments in times of disgruntled annoyance. But Eva Monleon Cifo would not approve, for she is far fairer and kinder than my greedy alter ego, and her creativity is about spreading a sunnier smilier experience, which surely does not bode well with keeping newly found craft talent to one's self.
Her doll creations are the epitome of ‘kawaii', the Japanese word for cute that has become a genre of kitsch playful toy-like art to which many dedicated crafters are these days inspired by.
