I am a professional artist, worked as a visual art teacher for some years and later as a freelance artist.
Born in Russia I moved to Melbourne (Australia) with my family in 1998.
I enjoy painting still lifes with natural objects like shells, stones, sea glass, feathers and also man-made things in very detailed and precise style. I explore shapes and patterns to discover an object's personality, which I believe, reflects the relationship they have with people or their symbolic value. I love to put some mystery in my still lifes, so people could wonder, think or recall something...
My other passion - Equine and Animal portraiture.
I work mostly in oils, acrylics, pastel and color pencils. Commissions are welcome.
