I was born and raised in Russia. After the PhD graduation in scientific area I moved to Italy where I live to this day.
For years I have been painting occasionally, then few years ago, I started to explore watercolor more seriously, initially as a self-taught and then by attending classes and webinars at a Russian online art school. Since 2019 I’m a member and a student of the Jean Haines’ online art school. I’ve become a true watercolor addicted and since then painting is an important part of my life and personality. I really enjoy the process of painting because I love watching watercolor running around and mixing! I love experimenting with different watercolor products to enrich my paintings. I love bold, brilliant shades which permit me to fill the paintings with positive energy and joy!
