About Me

I was born in a small Russian city. The financial and political situation in the country did not offered many opportunities. You had to take care of yourself, from the shelf there was nothing. At the age of four, I took painting lessons. In addition to this, I had other activities: cross-country skiing, trampolining, chess, floristry and Russian folk dance. After the age of 7, I started partitipating in a Russian art school – 5 days a week after regular lessons. Looking back: it was hard and difficult time, bau I was always happy and did not miss a thing. We had rivers, lakes, swamps, forests. There were few cars, we could play on the streets and spent a lot of time in nature. All activities took place in and with nature. During this time I have learned to recognize and appreciate the beauty of each tree, each sunrise. I have a very special relationship with trees. These protect us against rain or sun, they change constantly and none is like the other.
The years passed and at the age of twelve the passion for painting remained and even increased.

In 2005 I finished the Moscow Artscool (S.T. Richter) with honors. Specialization: fine arts (drawing, painting, sculpture, composition, art history).

2006 I have joined the Moscow State Textile University, named after A.N. Kosygin, for the subject „Art design of leather goods“.

Till 2011 I have participated and won a lot of competitions –
Graduated the Moscow State Textile University, diploma with distinction, qualification as an artist stylist, special field „Art design of leather goods“
2011 – 2014 Worked as shoe designer in an international shoe company.

2018 – September, I pick up a brush again!

The Beginning

The exploration of nature and painting were the things that made fun for me. My parents gave me all the freedom and the support.

I have learned to paint from old school masters. The basic technique and the constant practice were on the agenda.

Now I have all the tools and skills to express my feelings in pictures.
