“I was born in Mongolia to Ukrainian parents and I grew up in Belarus. I lived in Paris where I studied French language and French Art History and I also lived in Moscow before I moved to Washington, D.C. in 2008. I have a great privilege to study with a teacher Doris Haskel. Doris was heavily influenced by Richard Diebenkorn, Joan Mitchell, Willem de Kooning and other New York school painters as well as by Braque, Matisse and Cezanne. My favorite painters are Picasso and Matisse.
I am a member of Women’s Caucus for Art, Yellow Barn, Montgomery Art Association and also an exhibiting artist at the Art League Gallery in Torpedo Factory. My works were exhibited at various group shows of these organizations, such as “Bright and Bold” exhibit by WCADC; 23rd Annual Friends of the Yellow Barn Members Show; open exhibits at the Art League Gallery and solo art exhibition “Journey of Color”.”
