My art training began in my teen years in the then-USSR, when I attended classes with a classically taught art tutor. While this gave my work technical foundations, it also for a while limited my self-expression as an artist to a range of academic genres and a realism-based style.
I had taken on art as a subject for my high school certificate in Australia, and subsequently attended a variety of courses while studying and building a career in academia and social services. However, I always came back to making art as a core creative need.
I paint a broad variety of genres in acrylic and watercolour. I have completed a number of commissions over the past decade. I am constantly challenged and inspired by nature to capture its many wonders.
