Stacia McDonough Wins Featured Artist Nod

stacia-m--portraitStacia McDonough of Neva Dolls, known for her exquisite Russia-inspired pieces, was recently chosen as the featured artist for the The Doll and Toy Museum of New York. “The Toy Museum is a wonderful institution. It is an honor that they chose me as their featured artist,” says McDonough of the award. “I was born in New York so that just makes it extra special!”

The museum’s board of directors chooses artists based not only on artistic talent but also on the educational merit an artist’s work possesses. Skillfully rendered and steeped in Russian history, folklore and costume, McDonough’s work does just that.

Museum director Marlene Hochman says, “One of the most important characteristics we look for is how the artist gives back to the community, and McDonough is very generous with her help to our museum and to other charities. … We want to see more doll artists follow her lead by doing more for others.”

Stacia is a fine artist and her dolls are top quality. They never fail to be a great gift and anyone I've ever given one to has only had the BEST of things to say. I highly recommend these dolls not only as a gift, but as a personal keepsake. You cannot find dolls like this anywhere else in the world and they are truly a fine piece of craftsmanship.

Stacia's Russian dolls are THE highest quality dolls I've ever seen. Me and my entire family are her biggest fans - we're hooked! Our entire house is decorated with Neva Dolls all year round - they're so pretty and make lovely accents to the decor, especially around Christmas time. At least one GORGEOUS Neva Doll is in each room. Stacia is a phenomenal sculptor and costume designer.

Beautiful Russian dolls made by a beautiful doll! It is very obvious by the meticulous craftsmanship of Stacia's Neva Dolls that she pours her soul into ever one of them. I predict in time the name "Neva Dolls" will be as renowned as other famous artists such as Faberge.
Gary Kaiser , August 03, 2010

Neva Dolls are the most beautiful dolls I have ever laid my eyes on. These elaborate works of art should really be housed in their very own museum, on display for all to see, both in America and Russia. They are priceless heirlooms! Their representation of Russia is absolutely extraordinary. Stacia definitely has my vote for THE MOST gifted doll designer and costume designer today. This award/recoginition is well deserved.

Knowing Stacia, as I do, it is not difficult to understand how her incredible grasp of the doll world, and everything associated with it, come together with the deep intensity reflected in the finished product, the Neva dolls. These presentatioms of her magnificent skill, in all respects, comes from deep within her marvelous understanding of what she wants the entire world to know what she must do to achieve the results that everyones has the privilege to see. She is a blessed event in the doll world.

Great article about a great artist. Stacia's NEVA DOLLS are BREATHTAKING!!! They remind me of the various artworks (Faberge, etc.) collected by the Romanovs - so delicate, detailed and elegant. This award is very well deserved.

The most beautiful dolls I've ever seen in my life. The favorite dolls of my entire doll collection. Stacia's talent and keen eye are remarkable. Her FABULOUS and FLAMBOYANT Russian lovelies will definitely be in a museum one day!

Stacia is incredibly generous and caring -- especially when it comes to our veterans in need. Each year, she donates one of her exquisite Russian dolls to our Sparkle of Hope Dinner Auction, having helped us raise many hundreds of dollars in support of our homeless and disabled veterans.

NEVA DOLLS ARE THE MOST GORGEOUS DOLLS! The favorite dolls in my entire collection. The Russian craftsmanship and style is the best in the world. No doubt, Stacia is today's top artist.

Stacia's dolls are very well respected here in Russia because they are REAL Russian dolls, not dolls made in China with Russian costumes. Stacia's costumes are not only beautiful but they are also historically correct. She is today's best doll artist and I am happy to see dolls that truly represent our wonderful country. God bless Russia and the U.S.A.!

We have been working with Stacia for many years and have found her to be a great talent and a community minded individual. She works so hard to create fantastic dolls and still has time to think of others.
