Hello, I’m Yulia, but people also call me Yulken or Julia. I’m an artist and illustrator. One day a friend of mine said that she was too old to go to art school and maybe I’d like to do it? I’m so glad that I said “yes”!
But creating something was always a passion of mine – drawing, sewing, crochet, knitting, programming (the latter actually became my education and work for 7 years))!
About my work
I work at home in my teeny-tiny studio in the corner of our living room.
My works are mostly hand-drawn but I explore drawing digitally too to have the freedom to work outside of my studio.
You’ll see little characters almost in all my works and they all probably will be smiling.
I believe in little steps (this is the period in my life when it’s the only manner I can make any progress) and in making things happen together with other people.
I like to get emails, especially from really nice people. So if you have any questions, interesting projects or you just want to say “hello” – please send me a message! I’d be delighted to hear from you and will answer as soon as possible!
