Hello dear friends!
If you are reading this article now, it means you are interested in Silk Flower Art and in my path, which led me to this fascinating art. With great pleasure I share with you my story.
I'm 41 years old, happily married with two kids, live in a beautiful city Odessa, near the Black sea and my passion is Silk Flower Art.
As long as I can remember I was always interested in any kind of creativity. I attended to different courses and classes like sewing, application of fabrics, patchwork, batik. I love reading and watching documentary films about biography of famous people who found their purpose in life. When I was a little I dreamed to become a doctor, or a cosmonaut, or an actress or a chef or :) ... but above all I was interested in the professions where I could use creative faculties of my mind, so, I got my diploma as a chef.
Later I went to University to study a very interesting subject – Fashion design. One of the assignment was history of national Japanese costume and modern fashion. That is when I stumbled upon the beauty and perfectionism of the Silk Flower Art.
Silk flowers deeply touched my heart. I wanted to know more and I did. I found out that I could attend to a traditional Japanese flower making school but that would be extremely expensive! Well, to make this long story short – I finally managed to complete the course and have a certificate as a teacher of Silk Flower Art. Started as a hobby it became my main occupation.
Working on every new project I feel that I'm discovering myself, I'm searching new ways to effectively teach Silk Flower Art. When you have an idea – the Universe will bring you circumstances, people, events to match it up - that's when I met The Silk Flower Artist - Lady Elena Bain. I love the concept and it is a great honour for me to work and to be a part of THE SILK FLOWER ARTIST's creative team.
I'd love to share my knowledge and, indeed my love to the silk flower art.
From my heart,
