I was born in a capital of Belarus ,Minsk and after high school went to study in the small town of Vitebsk. Being 17 years old and alone in a stranger city forced me to take a closer look to a typical grey town of Russian Soviet era .When I found out that Mark Shagal was born and work there, I realized that the surroundings did not create the artist. An artist has to recreate the world around by seeing the beauty and uniqueness that may otherwise be hidden in the mediocrity around. I graduated from University with Masters in Fashion Design and worked at Byelorussian fashion centre for almost a decade. In 1990 I immigrated to Canada where I am residing with my family and work full time as an artist.
I believe that I am very fortunate to have passion of creating and was blessed by a gift. Painting is a physical and emotional necessity for me. From a deep concern for the state of our planet to the beauty of the simple objects, there is no mundane subject matter. I strive to preserve the joyful and innocent view of the world that children have, their feeling of passion and splendour. Through the colours and textures of my work, I hope to engage the viewer and draw out a sense of wonder. My inspiration comes from within; I am still somewhat surprised by what moves my hand toward the canvas, what touches my soul and makes my heart skip a beat.
