BIOGRAPHY 

 

I was born in the small Russian town – Chusovoi, Perm Region, in 1968. But my childhood passed in Kostanay-city, in Kazakhstan, where I started drawing at 3 years old. Later I began to attend a visual studio in the Children's Home of Creativity, where I studied for 5 years. In 1984 I entered a teacher training college in Perm. In 1988 I graduated from college with excellent diploma. I continued my studies in 1988-1993 in Almaty (Kazakhstan), at Almaty State University. I received a diploma of higher education in the profession, «Teacher of Fine Arts and Drawing». I studied at the university and at the same time worked as an artist at the Puppet-Theater, in Kostanay, Kazakhstan.

 

In 1995, my family moved to Russia, to the Chelyabinsk-city. The time has come when the circle of my professional interests has changed. Instead of drawing came psychology. For a long time I worked as an assistant professor in the department of psychology at the Chelyabinsk State Pedagogical University. This required additional education. In 2000 I got a degree in pedagogy. In 2015, I graduated from the Faculty of Psychology, having received a master's degree in educational psychology. Since 2015 I live in Bulgaria, in the Pleven. Here, for the first time in many years, renewed passion for painting. Watercolor captured me, and from that moment it became an integral part of my life. In October 2015, my first solo watercolor exhibition was held. I participate in international and national exhibitions. The theme of my watercolors is diverse. In my work there is a place for landscapes and multi-figured compositions. I draw plots for pictures from nature, the plant world, and from the life of ordinary people. Flowers especially inspire me. This is fertile ground for creating watercolors. Characteristic features of my work: interest in small details, complex gradients, subtle transitions of one color to another, careful study of fragments.
