Received education in Minsk, Belarus.
Currently, she reside in Jacksonville, NC, United States,
where she passionately create dolls.
Her professional dedication to dolls began in 2009.
In 2010, she embarked on her ambitious project, BiDoll,
which took four years to bring to fruition.
When Rafael was a child, she dreamed of a Barbie doll.
Her first Barbie appeared when she was 14.
That's when Rafael realized that she received not just a doll,
but emotions. Barbie was the starting point and inspiration
for her in the search for her own style in art.
"My dolls should evoke emotions," says Rafael.
That's the main thing!
I understood this in my childhood and I'm very afraid
that this value can be lost, as modern
technologies are developing very quickly.
