  • Biography
     I am a Russian watercolorist living in Switzerland. I get inspired of discovering new places so each time I travel, I create a new series of paintings. The main subjects for me are water, boats and nature. Most of the time I paint "en plein air", so there are only real things which I saw with my own eyes.
      I have a Master degree in Industrial Design and I made a long way becoming an artist. I have already worked as an interior designer, decorator, muralist and 3D modeler. Now I'm focused on painting and work as an art teacher at school permanently. During my free time, I give art workshops for children and adults.
      As of 2018, I am a member of the International Watercolour Society (IWS) in Switzerland and since 2019 - a member of Association Romande for the Valorisation of the Arts (ARVA).  In November 2019 I opened my art school "Artiloft" in Renens VD, Switzerland. 
      My paintings are located in private collections in the United States, Canada, Great Britain, Australia, Austria, China, Russia, Turkey, Indonesia, Germany, France, Italy and Switzerland.
