Yulia was born in Russia and is now living in Amsterdam. From an early age she showed a talent for drawing and painting being drawn particularly to colourful painting. Yulia studied at the university as a classical art teacher. In 2000 she started the restoration and painting of icons.
Yulia then progressed to making murals and paintings. Gradually these became more removed from classical art and developed much more of a contemporary feel. Her work now encompasses a bright vivid palette of colours in her wonderful flower paintings. They are built up in layers of thick acrylic paint to give a richness of texture. Yulia feels strongly that she wishes her painting’s to imbue a positive feeling in the viewer.
Yulia’s paintings have been exhibited in a number of galleries in Europe and very successfully at several art fairs.
