I was born in 1981 in Kharkov, Ukraine. In
1999 I was admitted into the Kharkov Art School and since have
participated in numerous exhibitions from Kiev to New York City.
In 2001, I participated in the Charity Auction led by Mikhail
Gorbachev to benefit the victims of 9/11.
My years in the Kharkov Art School, from ages
12-16, provided me with knowledge and experience in the field
of art. The courses required a high level of self-discipline,
organization and meticulous attention to detail. My consistently
high performance in the school reflected my aptitude for art.
From January 2004 until May 2006 I was an art
student in Darton college (GA, USA). This two year course increased
my knowledge in Photography, Design and Drawing. I also took a
second major in Foreign Languages (Spanish).
From September 2006 to May 2010, I was been a
student of Savannah College of Art and Design at the Atlanta campus.
I moved to Deep River with my husband and son
in 2009 and joined the Valley Artisans' Co-op shortly after my
~2004 - "Spring Into Art Exhibition" in Valdosta, GA.
~2003 - one of my pictures was purchased by an American collector
(his collection consists of about 12,000 pictures of Non-Conformist
Artists) and director of the Zimmerly Museum in Washington.
~2002 - First Prize among young artists "From 20 to 40".
The contest was held with the help of the Government of Moscow.
~2000-2003 - Scholarship from the “Fund of Rising Talented
Youth”, led by the Governor of Kharkov region, Ukraine.
