Irina Tyulneva is a self-taught ceramic artist from Russia. She lives in the village of Chervishevo 22 km from Tyumen in a big house full of children, cats and dogs. In a creative world of art she is a beginner. Irina finds inspiration in her surroundings: farmland, river, forest, her children, lullaby at night, cat sitting on the windows, poplars in her street, bench in her garden, the patterns of frost on the non-plastic windows. These simple things so dear to her turn into creativity. Ceramic artist Irina Tyulneva is a mother of three beautiful children – a daughter and two sons. For her, it is important to invest meaning into the work, to engage not only the hearts, but also the thoughts of viewers. The biggest of her work made in clay – the goddess of joy and laughter, as tall as a man. Irina Tyulneva is in a world of good. Something elusive sets her apart from everyone else. She is very talented, and works have a soul.
