I am originally from Ukraine, and 20 years ago I moved to Cyprus which has become my second home. My husband and I live in Kampia, a little village in the middle of the island. Several years ago, we constructed my studio nearby. Here I spent most of my time working on designs and conducting private master classes. Regardless of my main occupation, which was as a nurse in the operating room for many years, I have always been creative. Sewing, knitting, painting, embroidery, fruit carving, and wedding cake making are just a few of the creative activities I have explored. However, my experience with felt in 2010 captivated me. Felting filled not just my free time, but it also took over my regular job. Since my first workshop at Atelier Fiberfusing in 2014, I’ve started my path as a professional feltmaker. I began to experiment with new techniques and eventually chose to pursue a career as a felting designer and educator. Currently, when I am not teaching workshops, I spend the majority of my time improving and exploring felting potential, along with opportunities to merge techniques. It was felting that drove me to pursue a second higher degree as a designer. I graduated in 2022 with a refreshed set of knowledge and skills.
