Meet Yuliya – the creative mind behind Charming Peony Studio

“When I was a little girl, I remember sitting next to my grandma and watch her embroider for hours.  She would have thousands of different strings, through which she would slowly move her fingers, picking up the right color pallet and embroider little forget-me-nots and pansies.

I was inspired by how patient and dedicated she was.  Her canvas was amazing; I could stare at it forever.  I slowly fell in love with art and design, colors, shades, textures, and shapes.  All of it became a big part of me.  I could draw all day long and not even realize that I’m hungry.

After finishing art and design school, I wanted to become an interior designer at first, then a fashion designer.  I wanted to take on any opportunity to design something; rooms, closets, small events, and the list goes on.

Then, I moved to the USA and life slowly began taking its own, new turns.  I needed to find a job that could bring me money to help pay for rent and buy food.

Soon after, my sister was getting married and I had a chance to be a part of the wedding planning.  I fell in love with design again.

This is my story and how everything began….
