The new 2015 year has just begun and I thought it was appropriate to write an introductory post for my new visitors and followers.
My name is Sofia, I am a Ukrainian-American living in Las Vegas, Nevada for the last 15 years.
Before that I lived in Ukraine where I was born and raised.
I love the two countries very much and the experience of living in both worlds gives me the chance to see a bigger picture.
My background is a mix of art, science and crafts.
Having degree in Civil Engineering allows a nerd in me to love lines, details and proportions.
The creative side of me loves colors, textures and textiles.
I am a self-taught artist and a quilter.
My inspiration comes from world cultures, artists' sketchbooks, modern art, music, movies and what I can see in the window.
I am amazed by creativity of the world wide artistic community.
This blog is my informal portfolio on
Last year I fell in love with the world of pattern design, which is closely
related to my all time passion for fabric and everything made with fabric.
This year I will continue my exploration of the
endless and exciting possibilities of patterns and I will be blogging
about it among all my usual topics.
And of course, I will make more quilts!
