“Every child is an artist. The problem is staying an artist when you grow up.”
I grew up in Soviet Ukraine, although the country I called home doesn’t exist any more. I moved to the United States in 1999, and the two very different worlds continue to shape my art.
I pursued training in visual arts since childhood. But I taught myself most of what I know today about art history and creative techniques.
I credit life experiences and keen observation with adding even more color and perspective to my work. As I matured as an artist, the use of primary colors, geometric shapes and whimsical subjects have become a staple of my work.
