About me...

My initial yet serious attempts at painting happened while I was in high school. At that time, I lived with my parents in a small town in the central part of the Russian Federation during the Soviet Union era. The most common painting mediums I could find then in local stores were gouache, tempera, and watercolors, which were used broadly in traditional Russian decorative painting and iconography. Over the years, I have found this to be quite an influence in my artistic career.

After relocating to the United States, I practiced decorative and mural painting in private residences, children’s medical facilities, and other offices for many years. I also taught art privately and at the independent day school, Ezra Academy, Woodbridge, CT.

After a recent relocation from Connecticut to Florida, I am now focused on perfecting my fine art skills and styles. I am attending art seminars/critiques, and practicing live figure sketching and painting En Plein Air with my artist friends.

Many of my artworks can be seen in galleries and private collections in the United States and other countries.


I would describe myself as an adventurous artist with an unremitting curiosity and admiration for the phenomenon of Sunlight and Moonlight and for all of Mother Nature’s creations or revelations.
This is why I decided to dedicate my entire artistic mind to reflecting on the beauty of our World. I believe that this would be a powerful inspiration to anyone who sees my artwork and especially to those who need positive reassurance.

I also believe that we can grow as artists and humankind only through consistently kind
communication and the sharing of our talents.
