Oil paintings by Olesya Yermolaeva. The desire and inspiration.
Sat, Sep, 02

The desire to paint a picture was my thirst since childhood, I had this urge to pick up the paints and a brush and paint. What exactly? Sometimes you know right away - there was a picture in my head (something seen, heard, thought, read and imagination tells you how to put it together), and sometimes you can create an atmosphere of creativity and inspiration also comes.

The artist doesn’t always have time to wait for a muse, it is sometimes necessary to create one yourself. There are things that appeal to you from the start - each artist has their own, these things they are always happy to paint.

The beauty of needlework
Wed, Aug, 23

The first toys were knitted for my child (which he really appreciated!), they were different suspendable toys, teething toys, and chewing necklaces (which were a lot of help when breast feeding!), Rattles with different yarn remnants, which had been at my house.

Over time, I realized that in my 25 years, I finally found what I wanted to do in life - to create toys for the little ones! I do it with great pleasure!

So I purchased different yarns (infant, hypoallergenic), hooks, hypoallergenic filler, and other materials, and launched. Most of the toys are first praised by my son. I knit with love and in a good mood.
