I'm an artist of Russian origin who grew up into a family in which both of my parents were artists. I studied painting and stage design at Republican Art School and Tashkent Institute of Fine Arts.
I have always continued fine art painting. My main subject is the landscape. I find great inspiration in the unembellished simplicity of nature and rural life: in shadowy rivers and lakes, sunlit trees and lawns, in seasonal changes of foliage and lighting conditions. I strive to capture the subtle beauty of everyday life, simple, emotional moments of human interaction within a natural environment: fishing, canoeing, kids splashing in shallow waters, and quiet reflective walks - these are the subjects I like to depict. My occasional travels added to my portfolio dynamic New York cityscapes, serene paintings of Cape Code marshes, and seascapes of the Pacific Coast.
Among the techniques I use are oil, pastel, and gouache. Lately, Iíve been especially concentrating on mastering the medium of watercolor. Unique, challenging, and unpredictable, the watercolor requires solid drawing skills, a delicate balance of careful planning and spontaneity.
