About the Artist

My affair with art started in the city of Art and Imagination, St. Petersburg, Russia. The art in St. Petersburg was everywhere, in the great museums and in the beautiful architecture and even in the rebellious spirit of my artist friends. During the day I studied biophysics at Polytechnic University, during the evening I studied art at the famous St. Petersburg Mukhin Institute of Art and Design.

In 1993 I moved to Seattle to study biochemistry at UW Ph.D. program. During my Ph.D. years at UW, I took all available Printmaking classes from the UW Art Department. After earning my Ph.D. degree I worked as a researcher at different companies in the biotech industry. At 2012 my unfinished dialog with art became very loud and I decided to leave science and continue it at Mark O’Higgins atelier program at Gage Academy of Art, Seattle.

Since that time I am actively participating in the art venues of the Northwest with numerous recognition awards. I found real inspiration in the "alla prima" oil painting method, as well as intuitive and graphic work with the mixed medium.
