WUCF Artisodes Short: Fiber Artist


>>I’M A FIBER ARTIST AND I CREATE WEARABLE ART. I USE FREE-SYTLE KNITTING AND I USE DIFFERENT FIBER TECHNIQUES AS STITCHING, HAND SEWING, CROCHETING. IT’S MOSTLY FREE-STYLE SO YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU’RE GONNA GET IN THE END. THAT’S THE BEAUTY OF IT. I ACTUALLY GREW UP IN THE SOUTH OF UKRAINE. THE PLACE CALLED SEVASTOPOL. SO IT’S IN CRIMEA. WHEN I WAS GROWING UP IT WAS SOVIET UNION. THE GOVERNMENT PRETTY MUCH WANT US BE THE SAME. SO WE HAVE THOSE VERY AWFUL UNIFORMS. SO, IT WAS BROWN. IT WAS AWFUL. I NEVER WANT TO BE THE SAME LIKE EVERYONE ELSE. I WANT ALWAYS STAND OUT OF THE CROWD. SO SINCE I WAS A CHILD I START TO STITCH THE IDEAS FOR MY CLOTHES. AND I HAD A SEAMSTRESS LADY. SHE WAS SEWING THINGS FOR ME. IT WAS AMAZING. AND YOU KNOW WHAT? ALL MY FRIENDS WAS ALWAYS “WHERE DID YOU FIND IT?” BECAUSE YOU COULDN’T FIND ANYTHING IN THE STORES. IT WAS EMPTY. MOST OF MY INSPIRATION COMES FROM NATURE. I’M A BIG FAN OF; NATURE, HIKING, KAYAKING, LOVE TO TRAVEL. I ALWAYS HAVE MY SKETCHBOOK HANDY. IT’S ALWAYS IN MY BAG. BUT SOMETIMES YOU GO SOMEWHERE; YOU KNOW IN THE JUNGLES, YOU DON’T HAVE YOUR SKETCHBOOKS. SO IT’S ALWAYS NICE TO HAVE YOUR PHONE. SO I WOULD MAKE SOME PICTURES AND LATER ON AFTER THE TRIP I LIKE TO GO AND SEE THOSE PICTURES. I START TO DRAW AND PICK UP THE YARNS, YOU KNOW. JUST GET ALL THESE BALLS OF YARN THAT REMIND ME OF SOME BEAUTIFUL FLOWER. ALL MY YARNS ARE VERY LUXURIOUS. THEY MOSTLY COME FROM ITALY. THEY COME FROM FRANCE. THEY HAVE VERY INTERESTING TEXTURE. TO START MY PROJECT, I WOULD HAVE TO GATHER SOME DIFFERENT YARNS TOGETHER. AND I JUST START TO WORK. I PRETTY MUCH KNOW WHAT SHAPE IT’S GONNA BE, BUT I DON’T KNOW HOW THE COLOR’S GONNA END UP, HOW THE TEXTURE GONNA LOOK. SO I’M JUST HAVING FUN WITH THAT. THAT’S GONNA COME UP AS SURPRISE. AND SOME OF THE PIECES I HAVE TO HAND SEW AFTER-ALL, AND THEN I HAVE TO CROTCHET AROUND THE EDGES. SO I USE A LOT OF DIFFERENT SKILLS FOR THAT. FIRST OF ALL, I WANT EVERY WOMAN TO FEEL HERSELF BEAUTIFUL. SO THAT’S MY GOAL. I WANT TO BRING BEAUTY TO THE WORLD AND I WANT THEM TO FEEL FABULOUS AND UNIQUE. AND I JUST WANT THEM TO BE THEMSELVES, BUT SHOWING SOMETHING DIFFERENT, SOMETHING UNIQUE. THAT’S MY GOAL IS. I’M VERY HAPPY THAT I MOVED TO THIS COUNTRY, BECAUSE I BELIEVE IF YOU WORK HARD, IF YOU ARE CREATIVE, IF YOU’RE PASSIONATE YOU CAN SUCCEED. BECAUSE IN MY COUNTRY I NEVER THOUGHT ABOUT DOING WHAT I DO FOR LIVING. I HAVE DAY-TO-DAY JOB. I WAS A LIBRARIAN. I WAS IN THE NAVY AND I WORK IN THE BANK. AND THAT WAS ALWAYS A HOBBY OF MINE. SO HERE, I WAS ABLE TO NOT CREATE A HOBBY, I WAS ABLE TO MAKE LIVING OUT OF THAT. SO I BELIEVE THAT AMERICA JUST MADE ME WHO I AM. AND I’M VERY HAPPY IN THIS COUNTRY. I REALLY HOPE I’LL BE STRONG ENOUGH AND HEALTHY ENOUGH TO DO THIS ‘TIL THE DAY I DIE, HOPEFULLY. THAT’S MY PASSION. THAT’S WHAT I LOVE TO DO.>>WATCH FULL EPISODES OF ARTISODES EVERY THURSDAY AT 8 P.M. ON WUCF TV.
