I believe that art is about sharing. It is about sharing the artist's emotion. Sharing the moment of awe of the artist. This is what I try to catch when I paint. I love flowers, I do mostly flowers: on canvas, on paper, on plywood, anything goes. Born in Moscow, I lived and painted in the US, Slovenia, France, Russia, Ukraine. The best description for me would be a self-taught artist, although I took a few private classes from some distinguished masters, and gratefully accepted their precious tips. Oil and acrylic on canvas, brush and palette knife are my favorite media and tools.
