MY STORY 

I was was born in Kharkov Ukraine and emigrated to Australia in 1979 as a young child.
Art has always been my true passion and has dominated both my professional and personal pursuits. As a school child I displayed extraordinary focus and dedicated many hours to private lessons in oil painting  and sketching.
Since 1994 I have enjoyed a challenging and successful career as a Graphic Designer. Although I thrived in the corporate world, the birth of my daughters Lara Bella and Ariella presented me with the inspiration and opportunity to make painting my primary occupation as well as providing a creative outlet.


MY TECHNIQUE

Most of the time I don’t use a paint brush: I apply the paint generously and use a variety of materials to model it to create a textured base. In my artwork I have combined acrylic and collage. I have developed a variety of techniques including multi-layered paintwork, and the incorporation of different materials including inlaid fragments of my own work to achieve interesting surface effects.


MY INSPIRATION

My main inspiration is drawn from the love of Australian nature,  and the urban environment as well as my own sense of  symbolism, placement and balance.  The work has been well  received, and much interest has sparked over what has become my signature textured technique.
