" I started my business very young and have never looked back as I always knew I wanted to dictate my own creative path. Growing up, I was always drawing, painting or sewing clothes for my barbies instead of doing homework. We did a lot of nature activities as a family and the great outdoors became my biggest inspiration and getaway. Today I also draw inspiration from modern art, fashion and travel. I think it's important to have a diverse understanding of our multi-cultural world "
Yuliya's work is characterized by the clean finish, organic textures and elegant looks. She loves combining traditional with unconventional. Using wax carving, lost wax casting and fabrication techniques, she creates pieces that are a modern example of well made future heirlooms.
Yuliya currently works out of her studio on Queen Street West in Toronto.
