About author

Mikolyuk Natalia Mikhaylovna
Educated as an architect, Nataliya had experience in several types of applied art. These included macrame, patchwork, applique, cloths designing and tailoring, knitting, engraving, sculpturing, and interior design.
She took up hand-embroidery 9 years ago, when cross stitching came into fashion and became popular with the masses as a primitive and cultural hobby. Nataliya saw this as an insult and decided to show the world what cross-stitching technique is really capable of.
She carefully worked out necessary quantity of primary colours and their tones. She also devised her own unique technology of drafting, refusing to exploit computing technology that usually interferes with originality and personal touch.
Her compositions made their way to art exhibitions in 2007.

Nataliyas own exhibitions in Cherkassy Museum of Art and at the Fund of Culture of Ukraine in Kiev.
She won 5 national competitions in embroidery.
In April 2010, registered in the Guinness Book of Records of Russia and CIS countries as the most difficult embroidery on the subtleties of color (360 colors in one work)
Gold medal at New York Realism Fine Art (painting, drawing, photography) in the gallery of Manhattan (New York) - March 2011.
In November of 2011 - the first three places at the "Russian Art Week" in Moscow (nomination - "Decorative Painting")
