Paintings With Lovewww.ArtPal.com/flamemilady2013
My name is Svetlana Shakirova. I was born in 1964 in Sverdlovsk (Yekaterinburg now), Russia. As a child I went to school of art, took part in some school specials that had involved drawing. I drew at all times and in all places. I don’t have artistic education. I am an economist by trade. Since 2013 I entirely devoted myself to painting. I took lessons from famous chers maîtres, participated in some webinars with helpful art education content. I paint mostly in oil, acrylic. I am fond of chalk pastel. I prefer painting in realism and impressionism. I paint portraits of people and animals, landscapes, flowers, still lives. I like working in technique that imitates old-time paintings. I made over 200 paintings, now most of them are in private collections. Since 2018 I am a member of The Union of Russian Artists.
