I challenge myself every time I paint. When inspired I seize the moment to put paint to canvas as my vision is formed in my thoughts: 
"Bringing to life moments in time to share for eternity"
I was born and raised in Kiev, Ukraine. I was blessed to come from a family of artists and art historians which influenced my journey in the art world. I started at a very young age learning from my family how to draw, paint and express the beauty of nature that surrounded me when I was a child.  My family noticed that I was a quick study and I had natural talents that needed to be explored. With the support and encouragement of my family, I was accepted and graduated with a Fine Arts Diploma from Shevchenko State Art School.  My education continued with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Theory and History of Arts from State Art Institute of Kiev, which is now, National Academy of Fine Arts and Architecture.  After completing my bachelors, I accepted a position with Museum of Western and Oriental Art in Kiev, which is now known as Bogdan and Varvara Khanenko Museum of Art. 
 
In 1994 I immigrated to the United States and made Pittsburgh, PA my home. I worked very hard and enrolled in The Art Institute of Pittsburgh and graduated with a degree in Graphic Design while I obtained my U.S. Citizenship. I traveled to Europe, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean to visit many of the top museums in the pursuit of studying art. When I was not traveling abroad, I spent my free time in Pittsburgh visiting the Frick, Carnegie and Warhol Museums.
 
I now live in Swissvale, PA where I have my Gallery/Studio at my residence. I find my inspiration with spring flowers and blooming trees to create my still life works. I enjoy painting friends, family and pets for portraits and world travels to paint the joys of a landscape. With recent additions of Venetian masks, which I find very fascinating and mysterious to tell the "story behind the mask"!
