I have been a professional artist for many years. I made Canada my home in 2001; a place where I can inhale inspiration from every sight.
I studied academic painting and drawing in Russia, and earned my Master’s degree in Fine Arts.
My passion for art has been the constant in my life, no matter where my journey has led me. I like to create and make art because it allows me to express myself and show what I find beautiful.
My projects consist of multiple works, often using different media, grouped around specific themes and meanings. During research and production, new areas of interest arise and lead to the next body of work. To live is to be inspired. I look at my surroundings, finding inspiration and muse in the everyday. Whether it is in nature surrounding me, in my family, my friendships, or in every moment that I have the privilege of experiencing.
