I was born in Sevastopol, Ukraine. Since I was little (as far as I can remember), I have always loved art. I drew everywhere if I had a piece of paper and a pencil; sometimes just a wall was enough. I tried different materials and techniques but love pencils most of all. I also love classical music – Mozart, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky – and listen to it while I’m working, finding it peaceful and inspiring. The process of creation always brings me joy and I wish to share this joy with everyone.
I graduated from the Technical University of Sevastopol, but then realized that I was still drawn to the arts. So I went to the Academy of Art and, after graduating from the Kharkov State Academy of Design and Arts in 2006, I moved to the US. Now I live in the beautiful city of Bellevue in Washington state with my husband and little daughter.
