My name is Clara and i'm from Barcelona, Spain.
Who Am I?
Since I can remember I've been drawing and making things with my hands, as a kid I didn't thought making a living from my art was an option but I always felt an unstoppable need to create things.
What is Pussie Toys?
In 2007, I made a plush as a present for a special person and he encouraged and helped me to create Pussie Toys. I started making really simple and animal-looking designs, I tried to sell them but I was still seeing it like a fun hobby.
After a while I started to really want to find a way to live from my art but at some point I lost the faith in my plushies, they took too much time and I was selling them too cheap and not enough, and I focused on making hoodies. But when i finally had the opportunity to turn the project into a real business. I decided that was not what I wanted.
I found in making dolls a path where I can give my best and offer to the world something unique that I'm passionate about.
What I have to offer?
More than 10 years of experience making plushies.
With the challenges I set for myself, tricky commissions, inspiration in other artists work and contact with the stop motion world I developed my own techniques and ways to make plushies and poseable dolls.
I've been wanting to share my knowledge with you for years, I hope you enjoy and learn a lot from my courses.
