United States
My name is Anya Boz and I am a Texas based artist. Though I love working with all mediums, my predominant and most popular art form is my posable art dolls called room guardians.

I made my first room guardian in 2011, and I opened my etsy shop in early 2012. I worked at a bakery and made room guardians on the side, but by the spring of 2014, my room guardians had grown enough that my day job was becoming more of a side job. That is when I decided to go full force into making room guardians as my sole business. I never expected my room guardians to grow so popular, and to this day I feel so thankful and lucky to have gotten this far.

I am interested in the boundaries between the world we know and the spiritual world. Much of my work aims to take the foreign and mysterious subject of spirit realm and tie it to familiar aspects of the visible realm. I want to bring light to the elements of the unseen that go unnoticed, but are interacted with on a day to day basis. My work also aims to create a link between the two worlds. I like to create creatures that one can easily imagine living amongst us, but have small enough pieces of fantasy to remain mysterious and magical, creatures both familiar and foreign, ordinary and supernatural. I feel as if much of my work creates itself. I am only the translator, bringing images of another world into ours. All my pieces have stories of their own that I never took the time to recall. Perhaps I am giving you a glimpse of an important scene in their life, or perhaps I am merely depicting them as themselves. Either way, I know they are not pure imagination, something too real comes out of my creations to be labeled fiction.

NEW PAYMENT INFO *PLEASE READ*


You might have noticed many of my room guardians in my shop are now getting reserved instead of just bought all at once. This is because I've been trying out payment plans with customers that cannot afford a room guardian at full price in one lump sum. Obviously, full payment is always easier and better for me, but I've written up some rules and policies for those of you interested in using a payment plan.

Reserving a room guardian and partial payment policies:

  • You must wait 24 hours after the room guardian went up for sale to reserve it. 
  • You must then message me on etsy and I will put it on hold for you. 
  • Your first payment must be at least 25% of the price and paid within two days of reserving the room guardian
  • The room guardian must be fully paid within two months after the first payment
  • No more than 4 payments 




THIS IS A WARNING, FOR FUTURE ROOM GUARDIANS GOING UP FOR SALE. 


There will be

 going up for sale Saturday, February 25th, on my etsy between 11:30am and 12:00pm central. 


Here's the sneak peek!


Spring Gathering Room Guardians by AnyaBoz


Remember that means that the guardians will be posted for sale at any point within that time frame. It does not mean the room guardians will be available that entire range of time!!


Also be aware that the purchase only becomes unavailable for other buyers after the transaction as gone through. Just because an item is in your cart or being checked out by you, does not mean that someone else cannot get to it first. 


Keep your time zone in mind when preparing! These guardians sell fast so be ready!


GOOD LUCK

Duuuuude... I saw the Rain Silves room guardian you made in 2015, and I want one.

But not right now. I'll hit you up in a month or two, when I have the funds.

You inspire me so much, so today I finally bit the bullet and started to make a wolf. :) I have the armoire done and now am sculpting the paws and face.
Do you have any advice that might be useful for a newbie that you are willing to share? ;p

Thank you so much for taking the time to re-post my journal and try to help me. The fact you took the time to do so is amazing to me and offered me a wet-eyed smile when I saw it. Thank you in itself will never covey how much it truly means to me.

:blackrose::heart: THANK YOU :heart::blackrose:

It's really the least a could do. It's hard to see life beat up an already broken person so hard. 
I hope we can come together and at least ease your situation a little bit. I'm glad I could do 
at least a little bit for you and maybe save a small glimmer of hope for you! :huggle:
