I was born in Saint-Petersburg (Russia). My drawing skills appeared at a very young age. I have been fond of painting since childhood and studied at an art school. I worked as an advertising director in the secondary raw materials market and in the fashion industry. Then I became an independent photographer and worked in different countries of the world and on different continents.
My paintings carry various messages, often of a spiritual nature. They symbolize different experiences associated with rebirth and self-search.
I started drawing again after 30 years break because of the tragic circumstances of my life.
I’ve lived in the Caribbean for a long time. In 2017, I moved to Belgium. I like to use gold in my painting as a tribute to ancient Russian icons.
