My PERSONAL ARTISTIC JOURNEY
Originally from Russia. Grew up in the military family. Graduated in Law.
I felt strong inner desire to pursue my free artistic spirit.
For this reason age 23 decided to move to Italy for studying Fashion and Art. Collaborated with some famous fashion brands, designing shoes and clothes.
But always been looking for something more meaningful to realise myself. To find my way and do what I love.
It was a long journey of searching for personal path, balancing between work and my new growing family ( three kids and four dogs).
And so I came back to do what I’ve always loved doing since I was a child – Painting People.
A great deal of what I have learned about watercolor painting has been through numerous books, experimentation and what I have garnered from studying the works of artists I admire.
I believe we can only grow through generosity and helping others.
So part of the earnings of my commission paintings and prints is donated to UNHCR – The UN Refugge No Profit Organisation who provides life-saving protection to families (especially women, children and elderly people) forced to flee their homes.
Thank you for joining me in my journey!
Together we can make support they desperately need.
