Interview with Yulia Brodskaya

Many quillers are familiar with the incredibly beautiful work of Russian-born paper artist and graphic designer, Yulia Brodskaya. Perhaps like me, you've been hungry to hear her thoughts on quilling - for example, how she plans and executes her perfect, flowing designs.


I recently came across a link to this interesting interview Yulia did with Storey Publishing. I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I did.

I think it's fantastic that Yulia's designs are bringing well-deserved attention to quilling - truly something to...


Now if only there was some way to include these little words underneath each print ad:

If you are wondering what this fabulous paper art is called, it's quilling!

Hi Ann,
Thank you for leaving such a helpful comment on my blog, which I will fix instantly.

First, however, I thought to send you this thank you note, and also for introducing me to your work here.

I'll bookmark it and will come again to have a closer look. It looks fabulous!

Have a lovely day,
Rose

Thank you for unearthing this, Ann! I've been wondering about Yulia since I first featured her work on Folding Trees months ago, but never found much information about her. And it's lovely to see some more of her beautiful work - it never disappoints.

I have been following your blog for quite a while now. Right now I am in London for studying and I am more than ever interested in design, paper and crafting because I do book arts and design. I don't know if you can help me, but how did you got started with this technique? Did you do a course or is there any good literature about it? Do you anything about ressource pages for paper and tools?
You would be a major help for me. Thank you already for any thoughts you spend on my question.
Have a wonderful day and thank you for the wonderful blog inspirations!

Thanks everyone - I'm glad you all appreciate Yulia's work as much as I do.

Theresa, watch for an upcoming post about quilling basics in the near future. Meanwhile, check out the sidebar for tutorials and you might find it helpful to watch my video as well.
