When I was 4 years old I told my mom that I will be a famous painter when I will grow up, we will live far away in a warm country full of sand ( we were living in Russia back then, and had no plans of moving out). Fast forward in 1998 my family moved to UAE, I have graduated school in Sharjah and went to Poland to study International Relations, following my curiosity I have joined group of colourful people with huge black portfolios, I have seen them in the city sometimes and always wondered who were those strange looking students, that day I have first visited Academy of Fine arts in Cracow, and for the first time I felt like I was at home, the smell of turpentine, stains of paint everywhere, gypsum dust and open chilled atmosphere made my teenage mind free from questions about future - I will be an artist, this is what I was looking for. I lied to my mom that I was going for International Relations entry interview and went for Art Academy exam, I have failed this exam, but didn't give up, after all I was only 17 years old and had some time to waste. Fast forward again: in 2008 I have graduated Art Academy and never regretted the choice of profession, Art is a magical experience, it is universal language, it is never-ending journey of inner discovery and meticulous world observation.
Today I enjoy painting portraits, to convey human experience through subtle body gestures and postures. Most of my subjects are women, probably because womanhood is the closest subject to my life experience: I'm a grand daughter incredibly strong willed woman, of daughter of the most loving and courageous mother, I am a mother of two energy filled rainbow daughters. I praise womanhood for it's beauty, warmth, courage, strength, creativity and versatility it brings in to our world, in spite of difficulties that women all over the globe faced and keep facing through the ages, they are the loving power, somebody's daughters, somebody's mothers, somebody's sisters, that have gave birth and inspired generations, being a woman is incredible burden but at the same time it is incredible blessing.
