About

!COMMISSIONS WELCOME!

I was born in Moscow, Russia. I completed a Diploma in traditional Russian applied arts and then a Uni degree as a fashion designer at Moscow Textile University.

In 1995 I moved to Australia as I got married to an Australian citizen. In Canberra I completed an Advanced Diploma in interior design. I had worked as a freelance architectural illustrator for about five years.

Later our family moved to Fuji for three years where I resumed painting, which I had not done since my graduation in Russia. In Fiji I participated in many exhibitions and did a few commission works. After returning to Australia I continued painting and taking part in exhibitions in Canberra and NSW. I have gotten a couple of rewards from those. I work predominantly in oils and watercolours. I mainly paint portraits and still lives, but also have done a few landscapes.
My family and I have recently returned from a three year posting in Croatia, where I continued to paint and exhibit. I was fortunate enough to attend workshops with renowned American artists Jeremy Lipking and Daniel James Keys. I have learned a tremendous amount from them during 7 day workshops in portraiture and landscape. My works are in private collections in Australia, Japan, USA, France, Lebanon, Fiji, Russia, Austria and Croatia.
