Julia won her first major national prize at the age of 12 when she placed first in All Soviet Union Junior Art Competition and was published in All-National Newspaper with her works displayed in the most famous art gallery of Moscow - Tretjakov Gallery.

The inspiration came from the visit to Notre Dame de Paris, from its ugly on the outside but (allow me to use my imagination here) sweet and deeply devoted on the inside guards of this special Cathedral– clumsy but unbreakable gargoyles and from my favourite novel “The Hunchback of Notre Dame”. What kind of secrets the gargoyles of Notre Dame are keeping I don’t even dare to imagine, but is truly fascinating and inspiring.
