I grew up in Odessa, Ukraine, by the world’s most beautiful sea - The Black Sea. There is nothing more awe-inspiring than a sunrise on its sandy shores except, perhaps, a sunset…At any moment, I can close my eyes and transport myself there. The first rays of the sun gently touching my cheeks and the salty sea breeze competing for my affection. I hungrily scour the beach - gathering generous Neptune’s treasures of seashells, pebbles, driftwood. Sometimes, when I am really lucky, I find a bit of smooth, shiny glass that had been polished to perfection by the God of the Sea himself… He teases me to search for more.
As I now work with wonderful gifts of Nature, I feel this same salty breeze on my cheeks, and the same teasing to find new and interesting materials to craft my creations.
My grandmother was an artist - exquisite embroidery,…
