  • Biography
    From childhood I loved to draw, I studied at an art school and there I realized that I like to draw people most of all, especially people's faces. Then it was time to think about the future profession, and it so happened that my main environment convinced me to go to study in the "male" profession - Engineer! I entered Automobile and Road University and studied there for 5 years, practically abandoned drawing for these years, got a job in the office as a road infrastructure designer, and after a few months I realized that this was not at all the way I want to go. Then the search for myself began, I read a lot of books, watched various videos, thought about what I really want to do. As a result, my friend once showed me a video of the process of drawing a portrait in the style of hyperrealism with colored pencils by Heather Rooney, it inspired me so much that I immediately ordered the same pencils for myself, and a month later I began to draw my first portraits with colored pencils. I was completely captivated, I drew all the time that I had after work, and after about a year I developed a drawing course with colored pencils and began to conduct classes in a drawing studio. A year later, I left the work of an engineer and began to devote myself completely to creativity. Now I am writing large canvases with people's faces, I try to convey the emotions and energy that is inside me, each face is incredibly beautiful and mysterious, my mission is to show the Divine beauty of each person in my paintings, to share this beauty with people and inspire them.
