I first started drawing just when I could grab hold of a pencil. Along with art, I have done Linguistics, some teaching, writing, photography, and marketing. Born and raised in Moscow, Russia I currently live in Boston, MA - and I love it. I love New England with its distinct atmosphere, appreciation of history and its unique mixture of old and new that's been constant inspiration and a true source of joy for me.
Having a diverse background and a rather eclectic taste in art - from Russian icons to Rembrandt's etchings and Goya's aquatints to French impressionism (I can go on and on) - I'm constantly looking for new ways to express myself, trying new media, yet I'm still fascinated by old masters and dedicated to incorporating classic drawing techniques into digital art.
