Painting became my main occupation not so long ago, in the beginning of 2019.
Before moving to the United Kingdom, I lived and worked in Russia. I gained a museology degree from the Yaroslavl State University, but I developed a more pragmatic career in purchasing and sales, most of it at national and international companies in Moscow, Russia. While in Moscow, I did a Mosaic Course and then studied at the Academic Design School, where I specialised in decor and styling for interiors.
The design school was a revelation. I loved learning different techniques, whether painting, decorating or mixing art forms - doing things with my hands - so much that I didn’t want to stop.
It was after moving to the United Kingdom in late 2018, that I had the possibility to spend more time painting, exploring, trying new techniques and getting to know myself as an artist.
I like botanical art and painting animals, which I do mainly in watercolour and liners, but I don’t have a main genre yet, as my art is still fluid and I am trying to find a way through the various art forms.
However, I am increasingly attracted and intrigued by the challenge of expressing the beauty and intricacies of this world in monochrome, which is my favourite painting technique for now.
