about me

I have had a creative spirit since the early childhood, as I grew up in the family of two amazing artists. My father is a well known theater and movie actor and my mother - a poetess and interpreter. Therefore my life has been interwined with the art very closely.

I paint icons, frequently, some oil paintings and graphics are made. And between pen lines and brush strokes, few lines of the poetry appear.

WORK LIFE
