About Maria Lalic

Maria Lalic is a textile artist and dollmaker whose work is often inspired by the legend, landscape and people of Wales. She uses a range of techniques including hand embroidery, applique, creative knitting and free weaving to achieve richly textured effects in her mixed media art.  As a dollmaker she is interested in the narrative craft skills surrounding cloth dolls as objects of social history and cultural context rather than as toys or playthings.  Maria is a graduate of University College, Cardiff (B.Ed) and the University of Glamorgan (BA [1st class Hons].  She also holds an MA in Contemporary Crafts (Hereford College of Arts, 2018).  In addition to her ongoing commitment to raise the profile of cloth dolls as primitive storytellers, she is currently making art and poetic maps of walked journeys through ancient landscapes as part of her "Unlost Places" project.
