My name is Aleksandr (Alex) Dyachuk , i am Ukrainian-American immigrated from Ukraine in 1994 with my lovely wife and daughter. I grew up partially in a farm village with my grandmother in the deep countryside. Everyday interacting with , imprinted love and respect for the nature and the wild landscapes. When i grew up to a school age i moved to live with my mother in a big industrial city with big wide river in the central eastern Ukraine, but when i had school summer brake i spent the whole summer in grandmother's village. I loved to run in meadows with smell of wild flowers and walking through a wheat fields or fishing in the river . I started to draw with pencils and i remember it was mostly trees, grass with flowers that i like to draw. After finishing school and military service , getting married , raising my daughter, immigrating in U.S i finally got a chance to try painting on canvas and made 'Hawaii scene'. All paintings on this site are the first i ever done. Traveling through a beautiful places in U.S i fell in love with American landscapes and variety of them. Living in California I felt very good expressing my love for nature through painting. Everyone of my paintings reflects love for the nature and appreciation for creation. I am self thought from books and magazines and still to learn technics and ways of painting, but love to express beauty is most important for me.The colors i'm using are true colors . I like colors of blue, green, and all the colors of LIFE. I also write poems in two languages i express myself through poetry when my mind is overwhelmed with emotions. Eventually i want to paint with oil .
