Maximiliane studied graphic and fashion design at the Munich Master School of Fashion and then worked as a stylist in known companies until she discovered in 1986 puppets as an artistic object
Since then she designed and produced freely according to her own ideas in loving and sophisticated handcrafted figures from the realm of fairy tales and fantasy. The faces of the moving dolls never look ferocious or fearsome and delight lovers and collectors throughout the world.
Her further specialty is creating lifelike puppets shaped and sewn from portrait photos. Here she puts great value on similarity and facial expressions. It is always amazing for the viewer, when they compare original and marionette.
