Fine Arts / Landscape Architecture

Born and raised in Russia, painting has been a passion for me since childhood. Upon graduation from the School of Fine Arts in Russia, I studied vision and techniques used by figurative painters of old and the greatest Russian marine-painter Ivan Aivazovskiy (1817-1900), which is still my inspiration. In 2002, my family moves to Canada where I obtain a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture at the University of Montreal.

My favourite medium is oil on canvas and all seascapes are inspired by the Black Sea in Crimea where I worked with dolphins and seals for many years. On a daily basis I observed the sea in all its states and moods. Now, far from water, I try to transmit power, beauty and harmony of nature through my paintings…

In parallel with landscape architecture, I’m perfecting my watercolours, stained glass and mosaics techniques. Another important side of my artistic work is a painting on Birch Bark – old Russian traditional art known since the 15th century.

Strong cultural attachment led me to study other aspects of artistic creation and to obtain a certificate in Russian Decorative Arts, «Khokhloma», «Gzhel» and «Saint-Petersbourg Painting». I am drawn to its rich tradition as the essential motif throughout the history of Russian culture. I had a chance to learn these styles with a master of The Art Association.

I share my passion with you!
