I was born in Kiev, Ukraine.
As a child I didn’t know that I have a gift as an artist. It took me time and life experience to realize that I needed to share my vision of the beauty of life with the world around me.
In 1988 my family and I left Soviet Union to start a new life in America.
On our way from Ukraine to the USA we spent three unforgettable months in Italy. The time that I have spent there left deep and tender love for this country in my heart and I have returned there many times to absorb the beauty of Italy.
I have got a Master’s Degree as a designer mechanical engineer and has worked for numerous industrial companies in Ukraine and later in the United States.
One day, when my daughter was 12 years old, I have noticed that she had a gift to paint and enrolled her into Rudy De Paoli’s Art Studio in Brooklyn, New York. I also decided to try it myself and spent quality time with her. After a while my daughter quit the class, but for me the new passion of my life started.
After spending couple of years in Rudy De Paoli’s Art Studio I realized that I have to move on and started to take classes at the Art Students League of New York where I had the opportunity to learn from world-famous artists and extremely skillful instructors.
In my paintings I am trying to utilize natural, radiant light of everything that surrounds my life and
I hope that all my paintings show my love for nature and people.
I have successfully participated and won prizes in shows of Art Student League of New York, Brooklyn Art Festival, Park Slope Historical Show and Conference House Artistic Show.
I have participated in permanent exhibitions in the following galleries:
Ward-Nasse Gallery in Soho, New York , Opus Gallery in Cleveland, Ohio and Interart Gallery in Huntington, New York.
I have had a few personal shows:
Hoboken Public Library
The Museum of Russian Art (MoRA)
