Yulia Popkova – Crew Interview

It’s time for another post in our 2017 Canvas Corp Crew Interviews. We are extremely privileged to be able to work with a group of over a 100 of amazing designers from around the world. They have all come together to create, share ideas, support each other, let us know what we can do better and remind us of what we are doing well.  Our Crew members contribute projects to our blog, design with our products on their blogs, create models for our trade shows, packaging and other fun little projects.  We love to hear what they have to say, to be inspired by their work and to learn new things everyday.
Today, we get to know Julia Popkova.

Why is it your favorite project?
This collage is a reflection of my inner world. I tried to convey in this project all that I loved at this point in time.

Do you teach and if so tell us a bit about what you teach, where you go and some of your favorite places?
I have an online class on a postcard with a watercolor background. I want to develop in this direction and prepare new classes. I also conduct individual master-classes in my home workshop.

I am the happiest doing…
anything creative. Mainly because my family supports me and I can do what I love.

My favorite place to be creative…
My home workshop 🙂

Tell us one cool detail about your studio or craft space…
My studio is constantly growing; it is already occupying half of the living-room and I am afraid that it will soon take it over completely.

Tell us one thing fun about you we might not know…
I’m afraid to fly on airplanes and I have a fear of heights.

Share with us anything about your creative life that you feel would inspire others…
I try to be creative every day. I can do scrapbooking, browse inspirational sites or master classes of my favorite designers. Or just sketch in my artbook.


You can see Yulia’s projects on her blog, InstagramFacebook page and of course here, our blog.
