Today I would like to introduce Yuliya Klem to you.
I met Yuliya during the on-line doll making classes from "A" is for Artistic and followed the process of her work with a big interest.
Yuliya was born and raised in Ukraine, graduated from the University of Texas, traveled all over the world and had a great opportunity to attend classes at the Royal School of Needlework (UK), attended seminars on the history of costume at the Museo del Traje in Spain and completed a program that earned her the highest certification level from the City & Guilds (London) in Design and Embroidery.
Being a creative and talented artist Yuliya not only keeps exploring the world by taking different classes and learning new techniques but also makes her own dolls, sews historic costumes, and does beautiful embroidery. Just look at her work on her website http://yuliyaklem.com/
Here is just a couple of them:
Lady Mother, 21", Paperclay and cloth

Yuliya's interest to miniatures started with the dolls. Here you can find miniature dolls that she dressed http://yuliyaklem.com/minidolls.html

Please, visit Yuliya's website http://yuliyaklem.com/ and have fun enjoying her art!
Many creative hours to you!
