ABOUT THE ART
ABOUT THE ARTIST
My latest passion ? pets and animals portraits ? started as my own art therapy when my cat became sick. Love, courage, and devotion of our four-legged friends inspire me. Oil is medium of choice as it allows for precision, bold brushstrokes and texture, deep colors, and flexibility in style.
Born and artistically trained in St. Petersburg, Russia. Live in Pittsburgh, PA since 1995. Two solo exhibitions; juried group shows, notably at the Pittsburgh Heinz History Center & Westmoreland Museum of American Art. Artwork acquired by collectors including Pittsburgh?s mayor Bill Peduto.
