About me...

The world is a beautiful place! Every day it gives me inspiration for my art provide my creative eye with food for thought. I love nature, to learn about her, to understand her and I want to express this through oil pints. Their richness of colour, shape, line and uniqueness. These are the things I consider when creating a composition. In my school years I was in a specialisation art class, where more lessons were given in painting, drawing and art history. Each year I had to complete an art test and always received top marks. After school I studied art in the South Ukrainian State Pedagogical University named after K.D.Ushinski. This was a great time with courses involving lots of experimentation in all areas of art and, with other students, I participated in exhibitions. In my final year, to gain my degree, I completed a batik project, the experience of which I found very interesting. It consisted of 3 paintings on large pieces of material which took 7 months to complete. After University I got an excellent position as an Art Teacher in a private school in Odessa where I had my own studio. It was very popular in school, and I did regular exhibitions of the pupil’s art as well as my own. When I was older, I enjoyed painting the sea at different times of the day and seasons of the year. I made small paintings and drawings, which I still enjoy doing though now I tend to concentrate on larger paintings on canvas. I have always been interested in being an oil artist and I love painting flowers, landscapes, and the sea. I lived by the sea for 30 years in the town of Odessa, Ukraine where I was born. I love the process of working with oil paints, their viscosity, richness, dynamic colours, and the connection between palette knife movements and colour. As well as when I use it to achieve volume on the canvas. I also like to work with a large flat soft brush. Brush strokes from the brush sometimes brings a more creative satisfaction because they give a deeper effect when layering colour. I delight in seeing light, energy, colour and contrast in my paintings.
