Jan, of Scrap-Works:
- one of the blogs I follow, has just posted about an amazing artist called Yulia Brodskaya, born in Russia but now living in the UK. I have just been exploring her website:
and I absolutely love what she’s doing. I agree with Jan that quilling isn’t something that has attracted me at all, but having seen what Yulia Brodskaya does with it, I think I’m about to change my mind about that! Here are some examples of her quilling which I particularly like:
Aren’t they absolutely stunning? I love her use of colour, and the use of white space too.
Her non-quilled graphic work is great too. She’s done quite a few pieces using a chequer-board pattern for texture which particularly appeals to me:
I used to dabble in this sort of “op-art” when I was at school – must try some again!
Finally, here are some examples of her other illustration work:
She is one talented artist with a real flare, and a very unusual approach. Definitely one to keep an eye out for! Hope you’ve enjoyed this little departure from the usual stuff on my blog – I may share some other artists with you as time goes on.
Thanks Jan for introducing me to her!
