I am inspired by the natural world – by the interpretation of it’s beauty and moods with color and light. I try to simplify the complexities of a scene to create my impressions of nature and the man made world, working to interpret reality rather than to recreate it.

I grew up in Crimea and have been living in Portugal since 2005. I studied arts at both the Faculty of Fine Arts at the University of Lisbon and at the Centre of Art and Visual Communication in Lisbon, however almost everything I now know and use in painting I got from many years of experimenting with different media and styles trying to find the perfect visual language to beautifully portray reality on canvas and paper…

I draw with line, fill my sketchbooks with gouache and paint on canvas using oils.
