Drawing, painting, photography were always a part of Katrin and Yuri’s life to a certain degree. Whether it is a sketch for a future oribana arrangement or an exhibition, or a drawing of a cover design, or taking photographs, it always reflects their creative vision and love of details. Presently, Katrin is exploring the world of art photography more deeply and finds it quite flexible for artistic expression. It’s like a digital paintbrush! All these digital capabilities, available now, allow experimenting with new techniques to create digital art works. All the artworks for Julian Ray Music are created by her.
