About me

Russian Impressionism is not only my academic training but also my artistic love affair. The inspiration is never ending just as the life itself. I never struggled to find ideas for my next painting, instead I struggled to find the time to paint. My family and my children is my greatest gift from God, and I use them in my paintings a lot. My faith, my friends, my garden, my travels, the books I read, the people I meet - these are all impressions of my life and they are in my paintings.

Born 1968 in Ukraine, I have received my artistic training in Russia and USA. I have earned my Master's degree in Teaching Art, Art History and Technical Drawing from Krasnodar State University and entered an after-graduate program at Herzen University in St. Petersburg. In 1992 I was invited to participate in an exchange program between USA and Russia and was transferred to the University of Northern Iowa. There I received MFA in Painting in 1994.

I am living in Cedar Falls, Iowa, and selling my paintings through art galleries and exhibitions throughout the country.
