Believing a princess resides within every woman, Ludmila Curilova creates highly feminine characters exuding the refinement of royalty. Born in the former Soviet Union and living in Canada, Curilova acquired her passion for fine art and drama when she was a child observing her father paint stage sets. She imparts life to her inner fantasy world through fairy-tale scenes abounding with ornate fabric, fruit, flowers and theatrical flair. Curilova fills her work with personal and universal symbolism expressed through traditional media, as well as sculpture, glazes, and hand-built and hand-cut pieces. Her enchanting art is displayed in numerous private collections in Europe, Canada and the United States.
