“She was so clear of her path, she left on a very high note,” said Niagara Falls artist Evelyn Bailey, who formed a strong friendship with Kulikova over the past year. “She became an ambassador for Plastic Oceans Canada and used her art to bring awareness.”

After a costly divorce, Kulikova left behind a career in corporate sales in Mississauga to move to Chippawa. The move motivated her inner artist, and she soon befriended Bailey. She started creating huge canvasses for custom-made homes.

The two friends painting side by side gave her a “fusion of energy,” she said.

“It was a soul awakening,” Kulikova said in an interview with The Niagara Falls Review just last week. “I went through a lot of emotional challenges and changes in life, and art was really my way of healing."
