Church steeple and bridge over water, Oil on Canvas, 40×30, $1200

 I was born and raised in Russia, studied Museology, including History and Culture of Art in Moscow. My education is as follows: Baccalaureate in Museum Studies, Russian State University for Humanities 1996. For 14 years I worked with archaeology researches, creating technical illustrations for publication. Following a move to the US I began artistic oil painting in 1999. 

My Art is a way to communicate. I use colors, energy and movement to connect emotionally to the viewer. I often paint with a sense of nostalgia, both personally and more broadly. I primarily paint with oils on canvas because it allows changes during the creative process. At times, I’ll see a different, better image while I paint. I like to use palette knives in addition to traditional brushes. I also work with acrylics on canvas and paper, and drawings on paper using ink, charcoal, and chalky artist crayons. 

I would describe my style as semi-abstract. My subjects remain recognizable, but I bend perspective and distance to add energy and motion.
