I was born in the Ural Mountains near Ekaterinburg, Russia. I spent a happy childhood with my family and friends. My first teachers were my mother and grandmother, who gave me a love for needlework and taught me the basic techniques of sewing and embroidery.

Then I studied at the art school in the city of Novouralsk. There I learned the art of drawing and modeling.

After moving to Finland, I learned about wool felting. I was immediately taken to the opportunity that wool provides for needlework. With this material, I had the opportunity to combine in my artwork all the knowledge of drawing and modeling, which had previously.

After many years of enthusiastic work, I discovered many interesting properties of felt and I can gladly offer you high-quality products for you.
