About the artist

DSC_9180edt2 copy.jpg

Ukrainian-born artist residing in The Woodlands, Texas. I have always loved drawing and painting, but have spent my adult years doing research and working in a medical field. Several years ago I discovered Unison pastels and could not stop painting after that. I have studied academic drawing, composition, oil painting, and pastel painting in a prestigious online art school and fortunate to be a student of such well-known pastel artists as Elena Tatkina and Irina Klimova. Now I am a member of Pastel Society of Southeast Texas and started participating in local and national pastel exhibitions and competitions. I get inspired by nature, by its beauty and endless variety of shapes and forms. I am especially fascinated by flowers and seascapes. I believe that my mission as an artist is to find unusual aspects of everyday life and add a little more joy and beauty to this world.
