I am a self-taught artist. I started drawing as a toddler, expressing things that fascinated me about the world around me. Painting makes me happy, and sharing my artwork with others is very fulfilling. I was born in Belarus, a country with very green landscape, lakes, forests and wildlife. I came to the US when I was 11. Now I work in social services and raise two children. I received a BA in Psychology and MA in Special Education. I hope you enjoy these paintings.
