Uliana was born in St. Petersburg - cultural heart of Russia, therefore her passion for art began at an early age and follows her in every part of her life. Her first influences were works of Leonardo Da Vinci, Van Gough, Monet and many other painters in national museum - Hermitage. Uliana was standing for hours pondering their brush strokes. During her childhood and teenage years she was surrounded by museums, theatres, exhibitions and many other cultural events. After graduating from Faberge Professional Art College in St. Petersburg as a jeweler and artist, she then lived in Poland for a few years and explored native customs and arts alongside studying at university to become a Master of Teaching. Now she lives in Aberdeen Scotland and runs her own business Ulianka art (as seen on TV) designing commissioned murals for both public and commercial clients. Uliana also works at Saturday school as an art teacher. Teaching art gives her a lot of satisfaction and joy.
