Artist’s Statement:

My main theme is Kyiv – “portraits” of streets, buildings, arches, corners, caryatides. My vision comes from colour (the maximum intensity of colour) and the outcome of my work should bring the viewer happiness and tranquility.

About Artist:

«The composition is original; the brushstrokes are robust and even a little wild, but never uncontrolled; the colors are bright, fresh and never dull or common; the painting is very decorative, but much more than that. Her art is based on tradition but has a contemporary approach. The quality is very consistent. She also always succeeds in reconciling all contradictions mentioned above».

Ineke Shwartz (Dutch art critic)
