Holiday Designs from Yulia

On a bit of a quilling jag lately, so let the trend continue...
I have some brand new designs to show you by one of my very favorite quilling artists - and yours too, I bet - Yulia Brodskaya.


These were spotted on the website of Cafe Rouge, a chain of French-inspired restaurants located throughout the UK. Yulia was commissioned to quill her typical, eye-catching designs for the purpose of attracting diners and party-planners to reserve dates for holiday events.


Lots of companies have hired Yulia to create quilled designs in recent months - Google, Oprah's magazine, Martha Stewart Living, and The New York Times just to name several, but what I especially appreciate about Cafe Rouge is that they've included an About the Art/Artist page in plain view on their website.


It credits Yulia, links to her site, and even includes a few videos showing how quilling is done - how cool is that?! I imagine people are often stopped in their tracks by her work and must wonder what this amazing paper art is called. Happily, Cafe Rouge is doing a great job of spreading the word.

Is it too early to wish you a Happy New Year? Nah, especially not when the greeting is from a high-kicking cancan girl!

Astonishingly beautiful.I am lost for words.

She is an amazing artist. Love her work. That first one is just fabulous although so are the others. I think more companies should follow Cafe Rouge and include an "about the artist" page.

I continue to be blown away by Yulia's work - thanks for showing us more! Her quilling is outstanding - but her use of color really pushes it over the top.

I'm glad she's getting the exposure she deserves.

Thanks Ann!

Yulia baffles my mind! My hugest question is...does she use text weight paper or cardstock? Her shapes look so amazingly firm. I can stare and stare for days. I want to grow up to be like her ;)

Anastasia said...

Wonder if there is any quiller in the world to match her. Never seen anyone quille like her.

Ann Martin said...

Sandy, I'm not sure about the paper she uses, but suspect it's a very lightweight card stock.

Anastasia, I agree - there's no one who can match her work, though I've seen a lot of people try. Some come close, but the Yulia-original always shines through.
