Olya Baklan is originally from Ukraine and now based in Torbay. She feels the energy of life which she demonstrates in her watercolours. Her inspiration comes from nature and wildflowers which she refers to as ‘the quiet poetry of rural life’.
During Devon Open Studios, Olya will be welcoming visitors to “Watercolour Paradise” at Artizan Gallery, Torquay. Where she will be showing her work and demonstrating watercolour techniques. Olya believes that there are no untalented people, and the art of all her students is a unique reflection of their personality, their thoughts and emotions.
