I was born in Moscow. I graduated from a theater school, which was later followed by a long way of self-search. I’ve switched 4 universities before I found my avocation. On my 4th year of studying graphic design I moved to Lisbon.

I guess, creating art has always been a part of my life. When I was little, I attended numerous craft studios, later I was involved in my theater school, and back then I was assured that my life will revolve around acting. At the same time I was, of course, painting. Sometimes with a pen on wall paper, sometimes on the walls of my room. I participated in competitions and even was awarded several times. About 6 years ago I started to make first money with my illustrations.


My favorite projects are, banally, all of my projects. Each and every of them, every artwork - those are a part of me. Therefore, it’s difficult for me to highlight any particular artwork. Of course, the most enjoyable process is my painting improvisation, painting not on commission. I just splash all my emotions and thoughts upon the canvas. It resonates with other people’s feelings too. It’s extremely interesting to read other’s interpretation of my painting and it’s story. Their interpretations become a part of me and I’m so grateful to the universe for letting me meet such people and such clients. I recently realized, that most of my customers have more than only one of my painting.

I’ve been painting since I was little, but I never viewed it as anything serious and never really trained it. Over time, fate and favorable luck have brought me to painting. I’ve always felt that somewhere up there I’m dearly loved and cared for. I don’t have much of a talent, I’m still very unsatisfied with myself and my technique. Being hardworking, using imagination and loving what I do - those are the things I don’t lack. I’m only at the beginning of my path, and I plan to grow and develop further.

As for my free time, I spend it drawing something for myself, walking, reading in parks, going to the ocean, or to bars with my friends, where we drink wine and talk endlessly, read poetry to each other, we used to dance together too, now we only dance on each other’s kitchens. New people and new impressions are what I fill my free time with.
