The most vivid memories I have of my childhood were the many days I spent painting, sculpting and drawing. I'm a 3rd generation artist born in the Ukraine and immigrated to United States in 1991. So many thing changed for me since I landed in Chicago IL and I am thankful for the opportunity to do something I love and be able to express myself in a way that is, I hope, inspirational to others.
Inspired by Art Nouveau and amazed by endless beauty and variety of Orchids, I developed unique style and technique, which gave me ability to share my vision and feelings with a viewers. I named my style Imaginary Impressionism. I unite line work of figures, brushstrokes, colors and nature in one single form of harmony and beauty. Most of my paintings are done in oil, which is my favorite medium.
In November of 2009 two painting of my artwork has been published in the Best of America Oil Artists, Book Volume II.
My artwork found home in many private collections in USA, Germany and Israel.
