I was born in 1989 in Sevastopol in the Crimea in Ukraine and already at the age of 12 I was accepted into a school with a lot of painting in the program.
Later I moved to Kyiv to study at the National Academy of Fine Arts and Architecture. Here I chose the Faculty of Architecture, where throughout my studies a lot of attention was paid to techniques with precision and proportions. The Academy to this day adheres to the old classical school, which gave me a basic knowledge of composition, drawing and painting.
When I passed my final exam in 2013, I moved to Italy, where I continued painting. I also met the skawbo resident Jimmy, to whom I’m now married. I moved to Skagen in 2015, and here I have been inspired by the classic Skagen painters and not least by nature.
I have always painted a lot and have always been inspired and fascinated by landscapes, architecture and nature.
I paint both houses, people and cityscapes, but I’m most interested in capturing the light and movements in the waves and the agitated sea. I love going to the beach and following the changing of the seasons and the sea, which is never the same. I grew up with the beach and water, and I enjoy being so close in Skagen, and with my art I also want to encourage that we all take good care of nature and the fantastic riches we have.
