I was born in a small town in snow-white Siberia, where April, my month of birth, is still dead of winter. I spent my childhood in colourful Ukraine, at that time still a republic of the Soviet Union. As a pupil of an art school, I met figurative art at the age of five. Since then, the portait has not left me.

In my study of art in Dortmund, Germany, I focused on painting and photography, because these two disciplines hit the portrait particularly well. In my current work, I have finally decided on painting as my language. My intention is to subtly bring the inside of people out, to illustrate feelings and to create emotions.
