Art is my way to get in touch with my inner child, to reflect my multicultural lived experience. My motivation is to capture, understand and share the harmony and magic I experience with, and have learned from, Nature.
In recent years, as a member of International Encaustic Society, she has experimented with various encaustic techniques using molten beeswax. Ulyana applies this ancient painting medium in contemporary new ways mixing encaustic with oil and pastels and developing 3D-texture using fabric and absorbing paper. She has gradually developed her own artistic style and participated in many juried exhibitions in Europe and Russia. Ulyana’s works are in private collections in Moscow, France, Germany and Canada
