She developed an interest in the arts at the early age of 13. Her insatiable curiosity led her to explore other modes of creative self-expression as she pursued her art studies in painting, design and glassworks throughout the major art capitals and prominent learning institutions of Europe. Her travels and living experiences in Spain, France and Italy, as well as her upbringing in the Ukraine, continue to be a rich source of inspiration in her work. Julia currently lives and works in New York City.
In her continuing series “The Light” the artist explores the specifics and expression of artificial lightning, as well as its potential to influence our feelings and emotions. “I try to show how the light can change the atmosphere and the mood, make the space more festive or mysterious, bright or dark. Also it is a unique artificial light that we can control ourselves. In this way I want to show that everything depends on us, as with chandeliers, we can turn on the light inside us and share it with other people or turn it off and stay in darkness.”
