I was born in the Soviet Union and grew up in the city of Leningrad (now St. Petersburg). Thirty years ago, my parents and I immigrated to the US. Since childhood I have always done some kind of art. Although my current career as a Dental Hygienist is not related to art, I am still passionate about art and I continue to find ways to express myself artistically.
Three years ago, I joined a class taught by Beverly Ryan, offered by the Art League (Alexandria, VA). In this class I realized that abstract art is the way I best express myself and that acrylics are my favorite medium.
