The artist paints her works in the traditions of Palekh lacquered miniature using tempera paints.
Themes of her works are fairy-tales and lyric subjects.
Her favorite work was a miniature "Scarlet Flower".
Tatyana thinks that it is very important to follow and develop
the traditions of Palekh lacquered miniature. Beginning to paint she intends
to express a chosen theme completely, to capture and define
personalities and appearance of all main characters and to decorate a box with elegant ornaments.
The artist paints her works in bright, mellow tones. She uses in painting her personal
technique methods such as "glaze" (covering a dry layer of tempera paints with a thin
layer of semitransparent or transparent paints or lacquer in order to enrich coloring
and get multitude of color tints) and rich usage of gold paint for decoration
a box with ornaments.
Tatyana Mayevskaya supposes her works are notable for mellow coloring,
thin and detailed painting, precision of drawing and high quality of execution.
Works by such famous Palekh artists as N.M. Zinovyev, I.M. Bakanov,
P.D. Bazhenov, T.I. Zubkova and also painting of the great
Russian artists I.Ya. Bilibin and V.M. Vasnetsov
had a great influence on the artist's creativity.
Mayevskaya comes of a family of artists. Her grandmother was a famous icon painter;
her father Vladimir Vlezko, brother Anatoliy Vlezko and sister
V.V. Vlezko are also miniature painters.
The artist liked to draw from her childhood and always
wanted to be an artist like her relatives.
The Artist hopes her works will bring good luck and happiness to people.
