Ekaterina Vopiyashina was born and grew up in Russia, Volgograd. Vopiyashina studied academic drawing and painting at several art studios in Moscow. She moved to Calgary, Alberta in 2015 to pursue her BFA degree from Alberta Collage of Art and Design with a major in Print Media. Vopiyashina works in several traditional printmaking techniques, exploring themes of femininity and appearance.
In honour of the season, Ekaterina has created and hand-printed a set of six Christmas cards, inspired by designs from the Victorian era. These unique cards offer a touch of humour and nostalgia for art lovers and collectors.
